Chinese Drone Night
De Ruimte at De Verkeerstoren, Amsterdam
Label presentation of the brand new XY Records for modern experimental Chinese sounds. ECHO HO is a Beijing-born and Cologne based artist. As a musician A.K.A. `zo-on slows´, from 2007 onwards, Echo Ho has re-invented the oldest traditional Chinese string instrument Gu Qin into a `Slow Qin´, bringing audience on an unexpected sonic journey by playing `Slow Qin´ tunes with a wild leap into field or field recording like sounds, merging voice and electronic noise, fusing experimental beats.
ORPHAX 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.
