PRESS RELEASE : Aussie-born Singapore recording artist/thereminist puts her spin on Michael Jackson’s Thriller!
"It was October 2012 and Thriller was playing on the radio. I had just finished a concert and wondering what to work on next. Thriller called out to me, and, my theremin & foley fingers got itchy!
So I got in touch with Chris Currell in Japan to see if he would like to help out. The rest is history!"
Into the arrangement, Ong breathed synthesizers, foley, vocals & theremin ('spooky lines' & more), while Currell added synth percussion & guitar lines.
The Aussie-born Singapore synthesist-producer who relocated to Nashville in 2010, was careful not to disturb the essence of the song when she laid out the structure and stylistic nuances, before handing her arrangement over to Currell. (Currell played synclavier, rhythm arrangement and other parts on the BAD album & Wembley tour).
Former radio DJ, Jeff Bell, stepped into Vincent Price's shoes.
Ong aka Singapore’s diva of the theremin performs on the oldest electronic musical instrument played without touching it.
“An inspired artist with a solid background (Shueh-li) has brought fresh ideas in the theremin field.” ThereminVox Italy.
