The Engine Room presents… Angela Wai Nok Hui, Lucia H Chung, M.E.L.T

The Engine Room presents: angela wai nok hui, Lucia H Chung and M.E.L.T for an evening of sonic experimentation that pushes at the boundaries of sound art and music.

Fascinated with sounds that are not meant to be, devoted to expanding the boundaries of music performances; she has a passion for experimenting with different art forms through the recreation and reimagining of noise and sonic art.  Her debut solo work ‘Let Me Tell You Something’ engages with political references and themes of identity.  The album has been described as “…the uncanniest debuts we’ve heard in years” (Boomkat).




Lucia H Chung is a Taiwanese artist based in London, United Kingdom. She performs and releases music under the alias ‘en creux’ where the sound creation springs from her fascinations in noise generated through no-input feedback mixing board. The volatile nature of the system and the unpredictable glitch from the excessive energy pouring into the equipment becomes her improvisational and compositional strategy.

Lucia’s passion lies in live performance and has regularly performed solo and with collaborators in the UK, Europe, Asia and North America, including Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival, Krama Festival, Lisboa Soa Festival, Sanatorium of Sound Festival and Festival Electropixel.

‘Fuzz comes alive, moving at odd angles like the sinuous threads are being chased by a series of subatomic bleeps and flashes. Tension rises as the tempo picks up, fueling the disjointed rhythmic quality within each sterile, self-contained unit.’ – Fox Digitalis


M.E.L.T is a dynamic improvisation group that invites listeners on a journey through ambient music, field recordings and noise/drone soundscapes. The group’s name, an acronym for Making, Electronic-music, Live, Together, reflects its commitment to exploring the technical, social, and political dimensions of sonic artistry through improvisation.

At the heart of M.E.L.T’s ethos is a dedication to the articulation of technology, listening, and imagination as a vehicle for queer-led artistic expression and collaboration. Founded by sound artist Vanessa De Michelis, who brings over a decade of experience from Brazil to the London scene, M.E.L.T collaborates with artists interested in interested in exploring boundaries related to genre, gender, identity, nationality, territory, and technology.

The M.E.L.T Sessions started in 2023, blending private gatherings with public performances both in London and Brazil. The project came to fruition through an artist open call by VFD London, an east London venue dedicated to providing queer artists with a physical space and nurturing environment for artistic growth and community building.
