Bengfang is the recording name of Eddie Yang, a Chicago-based artist who adeptly tinkers with numerous computer programs and software to craft visceral experimental tracks. Like Arca, he lays jarring sonic elements over more conventional beats, concurrently flinging us into unexplored sonic realms and speaking to our primal instincts.
Today, we're premiering the video to his preternatural track "The Distant Future." In the clip, we watch the unfolding of Benfang's peculiar tale that features a woman, grapefruit flesh, and an unidentified creature. Through this depiction of a strange hunger for the unknown, Bengfang gives us an enticingly disturbing glimpse into a possible future.
"The song and video is a portrayal of the viciousness in human behavior," Yang told The FADER in an email. "The song is aggressive and lugubrious which makes its dramatic sound. I also think it's an interesting mix of emotions. [For the video] I wanted to show a woman eating a creature. It is kind of my adaptation of Eve and the apple."
