12. Rainbow Chan in all her glory

Her video clip “Sweet Tooth” is a real treat!
You can find it on Vimeo and Youtube.

Rainbow Chan talks ice cream and baby vomit, Chinese-folkhip-hop, and turning her mum into a robot cow-man. Considering all this it’s easy to throw words like cute and gawky around
when writing about her, but you’d be mistaken for assuming
she’s as sunny as her name.►

“The sounds I choo�
se can be quite sweet
and saccharine people
project those sounds
into my image...”

How many instruments do you use during a
live show?
Rainbow: I have a loop pedal, a sampler,
glockenspiels, a mini keyboard from my
childhood, kalimbas, a melodica, and various
vintage toys and music boxes that I make live
loops with.
Have you got your favourites?
I love the kalimbas! They sound like raindrops and have the most resonant, pure tone
colours. I bought them in Iceland when FBi
flew me over there. I like being able to sample
them and glitch them up, as well as stripping it
down and singing a cappella with them.??
What’s the newest addition to your instruments?
I got an amazing circuit-bent toy cow for a
Christmas present so I’ve been experimenting
and making loops with it. The inside of its ears
are yellow and they even flash in time with the
rhythms I make!
What’s the strangest thing you’ve made
music with?
For a uni assignment, I composed a Chinese-folk-hip-hop piece that sampled my mum
telling a folktale about a cowherd in Cantonese
and also making cow noises. I manipulated
her voice so she sounded like an alien robot
cow-man, almost like my circuit-bent toy cow,
in hindsight!??
Are there any instruments you’d kill to get
your hands on?
I would love to own a harp. And the Croatian
sea organ. And this beautiful rainbow-coloured
circuit-bent synth would be awesome too!

What can we expect at the Sweet Tooth
tour gigs?
You’ll probably see me looking like an octopus with my multi-tasking, making live loops
while singing and playing instruments. You’ll
most definitely see some nerdy dancing to
pitch-bent beat-boxing. I will also be doing
my cover of ‘Lovefool’. 90s pop revival? Yes,
What’s to come for you in 2012?
I’ll be releasing my debut album, going on a
tour, and according to my dad, will continue
to have “lucky-chi”. Let’s hope he is right.??
What was it like making your new film
Possibly the most fun and disgusting experience I’ve ever gone through. We poured
16 litres of melted ice cream and assorted
lollies over my body. We had to do multiple
takes as well so I became well acquainted
with the smell of off ice cream. I didn’t realise that I would smell like baby vomit for the
next week. But it was well worth it!??
