HUANG Da-wang, a.k.a. Black Wolf or Yingfan-Psalmanazar, is known as the walking Wikipedia of music in Taiwan’s sound/performance art scene. Da-wang has developed a distinctive style of electronic noise and improvisation. His “Black Wolf Nakashi” show mixes music genres and combines his unique rapping, singing, and dancing. His performances are splendid, but he still sees himself as a loser.
This film follows him closely, observing the links between his daily life and creations, shuttling in the city with him, from bedroom to ruins, from sound to body.
