Cheng Yi-Ping aka Betty Apple (b.1986, based in Taipei) is a sound artist, electronic composer and DJ, and her practice is mainly in live art, sound art and video. Using sound and body as her artistic approach, the concept of her works is rooted from the postcolonial surrounding she originally comes from. By desecrating the imaginary historical burden and false symbols of race and history with the fictional intercontextuality, Cheng intends to break the control of industrial civilisation and to deconstruct the order of new world. Recently she is well known by her impromptu piece ‘The Feminine Voice’ which applying the contemporary erotic objects such as vibrating eggs, underwear, cutlery and neon paint as sound live material onto her body. Her performance is meant to challenge the symbolic fatherhood power by recording the microphone’s shouting and smash and remixing it into dramatic digital noises.
