SVBKVLT LAUNCH & POSTER EXHIBITION – MUSIC + FILM

Published April 17, 2013 by subcultureshanghai

This Sunday at On Stage, to celebrate the launch of SVBKVLT and Idle Beats’ exhibition of all the Sub-Culture posters from the last 3 years, we have invited some of our favorite local live acts to join in on the fun. Here is a run down on who will be performing/showcasing their work on the day.

 

MENGQI

MengQi 1

Producing electronic music since the age of 14, Beijing’s MengQi is one of the most individual and interesting electronic musicians around. As well as his stall selling his own hand-made synths and effect boxes, MengQi will be performing a showcase using only his own DIY instruments to show what his inventions are capable of.

 

FADED GHOST

ChaCha- 2

Faded Ghost is the new solo project from Sub-Culture’s ChaCha. Dark, brooding synth works, drones, echos and warped vocals, Faded Ghost sounds like little else coming out of China. She will be performing a DJ/FX set, including new, forthcoming SVBKVLT material.

 

S L V

Hamacide and Downstate’s S L V project is by far one of the best live electronic acts in Shanghai right now. Their debut performance at Sub-Culture a couple of months back was the perfect way to kick off Sub-Culture in 2013, and we are very excited to present their second Shanghai performance for the SVBKVLT launch.

 LON

LON has had more leaving parties in Shanghai than we can remember, and he also makes some of the strangest music we’ve heard around these parts too. We aren’t sure what he will play, and probably he isn’t either, but we are sure its going to be something quite special.

 

The Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde Monster Mash

JEKYLL HYDE  3 faces

Following the success of last year’s performance opening for the Devil Music Ensemble & this year’s performance for Jue Festival Acid Pony Club and Tina Sprinkles will expand and create a live cinematic landscape titled “Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde Monster Mash”

Live Cinema can be described as a situationist audiovisual performance. Tina Sprinkles will be re editing and mashing up 3 different versions of the classic film Dr Jekyll& Mr Hyde, produced in 1920,1931 & 1941  creating a new narrative through live layering and video.  Acid Pony Club will be generating a unique audio landscape in direct response to the visual manipulation. The result is psychedelic, transcendental and challenges preconceived ideas and expectations of the cinematic experience.

 

Hiro Ikematsu – Short Movie

web_poster

Enter the world of John Raster. After he learns of his death during a skeptical job interview, he is forced to choose whether to accept or reject a life after death. This is an experimental film that uses electronic music in replacement of dialogue. Set in an industrial warehouse, It is essentially a modern musical of a man in purgatory coming to terms with his death.

AM444

 

After packing out JZ club last April, and recently returning from the Sakifo festival on Reunion Island, we finally present the long overdue return to The Shelter for ChaCha and Jay.Soul!

 

ROM

 

Post-apocalyptic head-fuck hip-hop. Rom is the future

 

DOWNSTATE

Tom Oliver is one of Shanghai’s most prolific producers. We aren’t sure what he is going to do this night, but we are sure it will leave you feeling pleasantly nauseous.

 

OLIVEPIXEL

Olivepixel spends most of his life on taobao buying strange analogue equipment to produce visuals to make you feel like you have taken hallucinogens, and then takes hallucinogens and makes visuals to try and make himself feel normal again.

 

Support from Drunk Monk, dji, Steven Lorenz, ChaCha, Ubec and Didje.
