1+

From Music-China Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

1+ is a series aimed at identifying talented young artists and bringing their work to wider attention, both in Beijing and internationally. It will focus mainly on showcasing the work of local artists from the underground rock, experimental, electronica, impovisation and other genres. The series will also include artists from other cities and countries who, whether they are just visiting or plan to spend an extended period of time in Beijing, are part of our music ecology.The 1+ format is designed to take advantage of the fast growing new music scene in Beijing and the willingness of local artists to experiment with and mix genres. As Beijing continues its rapid development as an international new music experiment factory, various backgrounds and influences meet in the Beijing music scenes to generate new sounds and vibrations that are often difficult to categorize and hard to define.

Unlike other live series, 1+ will identify and promote individual artists by showcasing their talents in a combination of solo performances, collaboration with local artists, improvisations and other formats, including the DJing of background music. Selected artists will have the full night to show various aspects of their work and to demonstrate the different strands that characterize their musical interests.”1″ means individual style, “+” means the unlimited talents that can come out of him/her. In Chinese 1+ can also mean “to be unique”. The series will not confine itself to musical virtuosity, composition ability or any other traditional or conventional standards, nor will it set up new models. The musicians who focus on the creation of their music will be given total freedom and will let their performances and sounds talk for themselves.The series will premiere on the 22nd of June, 2006. The first artist to be showcased is Shengy, best known as a percussionist, impoviser and space noise explorer. She is the drummer for legendary local band Hang on the Box, a member of the experimental duo White, and a performer who has played with a wide variety of local and international performers.
