  • About the Performance

    Music and sound are the results of circularity and repetition. The circle of rhythm rolls, transformsdeforms, disappears in familiar places, and then metamorphosesdeforms, reorganizes, and reappears in a differentanother identity. When it accelerates to an instantthe extreme, all the sounds aries compressed into a crack of noise that passes pierces through the cochlea. And Wwhen time is slowed down to a certain extentthe extreme, the sound will becomeis like an untied clewball of thread that has been untied: , just one long and single thread is left, that stretches and it constantly changes in the ocean of time.

    Fluxus is an ambiguous overflow and provocation that our daily life exertsed on art, while “‘noises”’ isare the surplus part of music industry. It is , the overtones floating around the main keynote, and the a microtonal micro sound universe separated from the twelve-tonethe equal temperament, and the wrong shots notes and or missed shots notes that the body wants to tame. They were are nevernot “discovered” “discovered” or “”invented”” by anybody. They are just there, for a longer time than the entire human history. They have been maneuvredtransferred and exploited by copyright and human language again and again, but they will never disappear and lost its source, like the infinite number of digits in πinexhaustible ℼ. Sound does will nevernot die out, i. It  is just is reproduced in the form of waves in space, leaving with an ever-expanding circle at the speed of sound, and starting from the source, again and again, until eternity.

  • About the Performers

    Second River

    The A sound project collective founded byof Zhu Songjie and Bai Mengwei , began in 2015. They  and has performed at the Sonic Circuits Festival in Washington, D.C. in 2018, t. In recent years, their practice focuses more on long notehe music they have made in recent years is more focused on Drone. Starting from two,  vibrating points, the collective sees the coming of new members every now and then. With the two founding members as two fixed “points”, practice of the collective could be seen as vibration of the “line” connected by the two “points”. While the space for the “line” to explore expands and changes from time to time thanks to the vibration, it will return to the original state eventually. But each time the so-called “return” will imbue something new and different into the collective.


    DYKK Trio consists of Gguitarist 31, bassist Zhou Yi, and saxophone player Liu Zhongtian. Last year, their band Dolphy Kick Bebop, a band founded by the three of them, released a live album "Briefvisit" (WV Sorcerer, 2020), and . DYKK TRIO is another recent project they come up with, intending to focusing on the exploration toward the direction of free jazz and improvise  chance music.
