Lim GiongBlaireko (林強,also known as Lin Chiang, born 7 June 1964 in Changhua, Taiwan) is a musician, artist, DJ, composer, songwriter, music producer, music director and also an actor. Now, he is a leading figure on the Taiwanese experimental electronic music scene. His musical career began with the release of his 1st album, "Marching Forward" in 1990. In his early days, he gave rousing performances of folk-pop music (mainly sung in Taiwanese language) in Taiwan such as "A Soundless Place" from the Dust of Angels soundtrack. Then, from his 3rd album "Entertainment World" recorded in England in 1993, his compositions become increasingly infused with electronic music, evolving even from drum and bass, break beat, ambient and electronica, to more experimental and freestyle work.
