Lane Shi Otay:onii is a Chinese born interactive multi-media performer and sound artist residing in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating Berklee College of Music in 2016 receiving Laurie Anderson Women in Technology Award, she was immediately honored for Best Vocalist Bronze Prize from Global Music Award 2017, Best Independent Artist from American Track Awards 2017 and Best Sound from AMII Works 2018. After more than 8 U.S and international tours with Boston experimental bands Dent and Elizabeth Colour Wheel, she devoted herself to the practice of mountain chest singing, sound designing, performing, and multi-media interactive art. Her solo multi-media exhibition Naked Winger  was presented at Stovefactory Gallery, Charleston, MA; sound works for CrowdArt interactive exhibition was presented for months at 798 Art Zone in Beijing, China. In 2018 she started her solo project under the artist name Otay:onii, followed by full - length album “NAG”, single “7 Yearster”, and live studio album “Molelipop”. Her self-direct music video “Shaoxing Nomad” was featured in film festivals such as Rome Prisma Film Awards, Istanbul International Experimental Film Festivals, Independent Talent International Film Festivals and many more. It is her calling to solve a puzzle with another puzzle that can't be seem, be touched, but to feel; And to constructing a metaphysical model that would allow the possibilities of objectivity even if there’s none, and the release of elsewhere-lings seceding from all those broke within.

"My task is to solve a puzzle with another puzzle that can't be seem, be touched, but to feel."

精神的积极者
请你们不要自私
去救助这个世界
直到你明了消沉

真实的坚持者
请你们不要自保
去张嘴闭齿
直到你沉醉于谎言

眼泪的拥有者
请你们放下自尊
去感化讽刺的将军
直到它们温润虚假

.
.
.

而剥夺者
请你们不要吝啬
去尽情压迫
直到你看到我

而我
请不要害怕
去脱离自己的身体
直到灵魂回到了家
