George van Wetering
Lead singer and songwriter of the experimental pop band MONOKINO, George van Wetering will perform his first solo show at the Rockbund Art Museum. Coming from a more traditional popmusic background the artist got inspired by Shanghai's individual approach towards music in Shanghai. For this show George remixed his own songs taken from the album Fake Virtue and will perform songs from his new composition called No Roots. During 35 minutes a remix of his music videos will also be shown, synced to electronics, live guitar, vocals and keyboards. The visuals are inspired by the rugged surfaces and the otherworldly universe created by Mark Bradford. The shifting of perspective and the multitude of layers are aspects George expresses in his songs and visuals, placing his songs into futuristic Shanghai, where electronic musicians, djs and vjs, rule Shanghai's nightlife.
