NEWSFLASH Shueh-li is on the road (mini tour) this Summer/Fall with Xenovibes!
World-renown theremin-synthesist Shueh-li Ong, and acclaimed drummer John A Martinez, will reunite as synthpop band XENOVIBES, to play fusion, progrock, emotive soundscapes and more.
Composer-producer, Shueh-li, writes the gamut of her musical tastes, and Xenovibes is tasked to present new and even more challenging material for this mini tour!
Greg Waltzer as CRANIAL MYTHOS will grace the opening with his dark, ambient, and spacey electro-acoustic music, sometimes upbeat and melodious, with strange trips in between.

It was in 2002, when Shueh-li set in motion the album production that would co-mingle her east meets west styling with her classical/electronic music training.
A year later, she released Shueh-li’s Xenovibes. Instead of using conventional labels to describe her music and methods, Xenovibes aka foreign+expressions would be her signature sound and her band/show.
John A Martinez was invited to be a part of the premier of Xenovibes in Singapore as well as its U.S. debut, and the rest is history.
Shueh-li’s modus operandi is to always try something new and adventurous. After producing 3 albums as Xenovibes she moved to Nashville in 2010 to write her 4th and ‘solo’ album.
“When John and I reunited as Xenovibes to play one show in 2016, we felt compelled to embark on a mini tour!”
This means hometown Nashville, neighboring Asheville and former haunt, Dallas will get to enjoy Shueh-li and John’s opposites-attract music-making. “Despite our contrasting methods, we share the same philosophical perspective.”
Those familiar with Shueh-li’s offerings can expect compositions that run the gamut of her musical tastes. From synthpop to progrock via fusion, lyrical ballads and soundscapes, the 2017 concert will also feature new material for an upcoming album release. John A Martinez works with 5-time Grammy winner and bassist, Chuck Rainey.
Details subject to change. Other cities TBA.
Shueh-li is grateful for the support of her friends and fans!
