“Chia’s artistic identity is one that defies the artificial borders and boundaries of the modern nation state.  Going beyond the notion of the individual simply as a constituent of a nation and its projected cultural identity, (s)he bypasses the need for mass appeal or approval and instead subscribes to the independent nature that characterises folk – the resistance to a canon.”June Yap, The WIRE

“My recent researches have been focused a lot on relationships between spirits and sounds, music and trance, shamanism and dance. For such experiences i obviously looked deep into traditional music, old rituals and uses of music to transfigure the body to some other extents. It’s quite fascinating that such a person like Marc, who is involving himself so much in very advanced technology, could recall such ancient approaches to music.  From this film made with him in Singapore, my ideas about bridges between technology and spirituality went further. What i had developed personally for a few years, this intuition that the ultimate goal of technology in our age is to help us to reconnect with our own blood, he was personifying it in the most incredible way.”Vincent Moon
