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
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
For a uni assignment, I composed a Chinese-folkhip-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
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, please.??
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 clip?
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!??
