Merv Espina's artistic practice involves sound, exploring it as both space, form and material: from prompting or spelunking into audio archives; documenting disappearing sonic cultures; prompting analog pirate radios stations; exploring the DJ set as lecture format, and the mixtape as manifesto.

This casual evening saunters through the auditory backdrops, musical inspirations, entangled histories, and AI datasets he has investigated in his many aural explorations, ongoing research, and mad mad geekery - traversing rural island electronica, jungle jeepney sound sets, decolonized tuning systems, from Southeast Asia to the southwest of everywhere, the Belt and Road, and the unpronounceable in-betweens.
