"Where can the music go ?"
It is the question asked by Chinabot, a platform and collective created to change the dialogue surrounding Asian music. And as I've been recently hit up by massive electronic waves from China & Taïwan, I wanted to argue that the music can go everywhere. Because it can be received.
Crop Circle is a program aiming at visibilizing the less visible in electronic music composition & DJing, composed by two white gender-nonconformed people. Here, I wanted to use my voice for a couple of artists and hoping for the creation of an electronic bridge between Belgium & Taïwan and China.
Let's enjoy the experimental & electronic universe of 33EMYBW (Shanghai), Sabiwa (Taïwan) with her new album DaBa & Zaliva-D (Beijing), among others... Then we talked with Jen Italiaa about the importance of technologies & internet in our life, imagination and art. Finally we'll have some words about post-internet art movement.
Have a good listening !
