Label presentation of XY Records, an electronic music label from China, founded by the curator Jiang Jian and musician Chen Mulian in 2011.
Electronic musician, sound / visual artist based in Beijing, China. Mulian is creative in electronic music, improvised music, sound art, video, concert pieces, and live performance. His music joins electronica, ambient, experimental, and soundscape, patching together various elements such as electronic, strings, natural sounds, noises and human voice samples.
Experimental/electronic musician, sound artist. Zen Lu’s minute, meticulous and minimalist digital music style as well as events organized by him and his label has played a major role in bringing a new wave of art activities to Shenzhen, for which the latter has been long considered a cultural desert.
Amsterdam based musician and trained drummer Sietse van Erve was introduced to electronic music in the early nineties. Most of his work is improvised, using a laptop and random objects ranging from keyboards, plastic cups being played with a bow, to vocals. The result is an organic lo-fi form of drone and minimal music.
