"The Sparrow and The Raven" is a story of music and images coming together in a live performance setting. It ranges from improvised video performance (VJing) and more traditional animated short film techniques. The audience will hear sound and video interacting and morphing in real-time. The performance will consist of a large number of electronic noises and music as well as hand-drawn animation. This combination creates a journey into a fantasy world full of psychedelic, audio-visual space. These ingredients have proven to make each performance unique within themselves.

Earlier this year I went to Shanghai with Noise Arcade. We brought our buddy Will along and he made a really great video about the tour.
Yesterday we arrived in the ghost city of Ordos, Inner Mongolia. Wang Shengnan and I did sound check on a pretty professional stage despite the fact that we are out in the grasslands. There are bands from all over China and the world here as a part of an event called the Ordos World Music Carnival. We go on at around 7:30 tonight.
Tomorrow night at What Bar we will be releasing the next issue of Jingweir. There will be performances by Kidd Wizz (USA), Dee (CHINA) and The Twenties (CHINA). Come and get a copy.
