Since retiring his project Dirty Beaches, Alex Zhang Hungtai has been focusing on explorations of improvised music, free jazz, and his new role as a composer of soundtracks for film. His latest musical output predominantly works with saxophone, synthesizers, percussion, and piano, furthering his research on ritualistic music of liminality. Solo output aside, he is also a member of an experimental trio with Portuguese musicians David Maranha and Gabriel Ferrandini, based in Lisbon. Zhang currently lives in Los Angeles and is also working as an actor in independent films.
