blurred doughnut is just beautiful blow

Shanghai second installment:

We made it to town.  Last night at Shelter was a stone groove.  Gazz opened up with some haunting soundtrack music layered with pristine UK beat stylings underneath.  I came on around midnight.  I could make out a couple people dancing, but the beam from the projector kind of prevented me from see farther than a couple meters in front of the DJ booth.  Up next Noise Arcade did quite a bass heavy set.  I’m convinced Shelter is the only venue he should play from now on.  You could feel the kick drum punching in your chest.

Tonight we’ll be doing a very different show at 696.  Joining us will be gritty noise madman Junky aka Torturing Nurse.  This will be my first time to see him live. I heard last time he played he ran an aluminum pipe with a contact mic through a bunch of fuzz pedals and delays.  Also, there will be Shanghai new kid on the scene, Noise666.  His last show in Beijing  felt like what I imagine putting your ear on a Boeing 747 jet turbine for half an hour would be like.  

I’ll be playing mostly field recordings I’ve collected with month around Beijing; which may or may not be the material for my next release. The name might be Bei Gou Yan. 

We will also have the Noise Arcade and thruoutin spilt out for purchase called Peak of the Moon.

Peak of the Moon is the second installment of a series of spilts between Noise Arcade and thruoutin.
This album’s theme is that of moon cycles and their relationship with our terrestrial bodies. Seriously, terrestrial bodies…

“重塑东北雕像的权利乐队,中午公开排练,新歌不错,古风后朋克,基本是《楚辞》版的Joy Division吧,爱将我们撕裂兮,卿已失去控制。很期待现场,不知道五一期间他们会参加哪个音乐节。”

Today’s a good day to hang out in the park and listen to “Love Will Tear Us Apart”.

Tonight I’ll be playing at one of my favourite venues in Beijing.  What Bar is usually a pretty fun time and the weather is getting just right for chatting outside while bands set up.

My friends Dwaas and Guiguisuisui will also be on the bill. 

今晚我在 @老what酒吧 演出。还有 Dwaas乐队(独立)和国际明星 GGSS鬼鬼祟祟 (滑板Blues)。也是他的生日。欢迎你们来玩儿。

After just completing a mini-tour of Shanghai, Noise Arcade and thruoutin, two electronic producers based in Beijing, will have the Beijing release show for a new split cassette release titled “Peak of The Moon”.  (Our 2012 split release you lose / i win http://iwinyoulose.bandcamp.com/) Also performing that night will be Parallel Pyres and Vurado Bokoda.
Artist Descriptions:
The swirling ambient synths and driving beats underneath them make up the sound of Noise Arcade. All of the music is improvised and programmed live. 
You can listen to Noise Arcade here:
http://noisearcade.bandcamp.com/
http://site.douban.com/noisearcade/

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNjI3MTg4MTc2.html?x
http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNjQxNjU4NTky.html?x
Field samples lay down the background atmosphere while organic and digital rhythms lock simultaneously over each other.  Dissonant pipa notes played alongside sappy vocals. These are the sounds of thruoutin.  Located in Beijing, thruoutinperforms left-field electronica with aspects of Chinese folk music.

Parallel Pyres is the solo project of Joshua Frank, one half of warped blues brother duo Hot & Cold and a live collaborator with Dirty Beaches. 
Rusty canned drums and scorched synth phazes give way to smog-laden basslines and melodic warbled drone. Beijing by way of Montreal, Taipei and New York. Transnational blues.

Languid, nocturnal, and non compos mentis, Vurado Bokoda oversees a slick, slow-rolling world of slinky synths and staggered percussion, orchestrated in hiding underneath the city’s nighttime smog and sprawl. Glimpses of this world can be heard on labels from Paris, Stockholm, Portland, Milwaukee, and Belarus. He is co-conspirator of the Beijing-based label 87非87.
