798 ‘intro’

June 10, 2010

藝術 . yì shù . art

Towards the end of May several of us took a trip to 798 art district.  A former industrial zone, the space is massive, and has recently been reconstructed into an “avant-garde” space for “high-level cultural” activities and exhibitions.  We went on a day where they were hosting the second year of “intro–Beijings electronic music festival.  

With us was Alexei Perry, one of the members of the montreal-duo Handsome Furs (the other member her husband Dan).  Yet to experience their live show, they will be touring here again in August.  I’ve put together a little video/montage from parts of that day.

If you dig some of their music (which you should), or even if you don’t, there is a really cool documentary series on their first tour through Asia (Thailand, Singapore, & China).  It was produced by CNN in a special series titled ‘Indie Asia’.  It’s got pretty awesome footage of what it feels like to first come to these nations (especially on tour).  Check it out here.

    Great video, Dave. The music fits the scene perfectly.
