about

‘A collection with a rare and remarkable cultural ambition.’ KEYBOARD
‘This will reconcile all the techno-loving tribes’ Trax magazine
‘And here music shows how universal it can be’ MCD
‘This expedition is a generous human and musical adventure’ Coda
‘This encounter is a musical marvel as much for amateurs of electro as for tradition music aficionados. The experience generates surprise and sound creation’ Zora Connecting
‘Close your eyes and embark on an unforgettable journey through sound’. Magma

After ‘world traveler adventures (African Expedisound) and the Mongolian Expedisound… Here is the third opus from the ‘sound diggers’.
9 months of musical exploration of ‘the other China’.
3 years of exchange and musical creation
After the exploration of the African continent and of the Mongolian open spaces, this new journey takes us to the Yunnan province in China. The third volume opens new perspectives on the original guiding idea, stretching further the space-time continuum to a place where nomadism rimes with humility.

China Expedisound is all of this and more. It is an unexpected and well thought-out cultural hybrid. It is the successful alchemic fusion of a roadmap, guided by shared experiences and the exploration of the other, and its sublimation in sound and image experimentations. This unlikely match between the Naxis (Yunnan ethnic minority) mythology, the Baisha (Naxis popular music) and the libertarian ideals of techno travelers- somewhat dented by the public order laws and their anti-T.A.Z aspects- is one of the most convincing chapters in the Expedisound series.

China Expedisound is in the end one of the most eloquent results of the tangible reality of today’s utopias… This one is based in sound but goes way beyond music. Here Electro and Baisha, Ravers and Naxis are simply conversing with one another South of the clouds. The result will surely take you way beyond your expectations. Yvan@ L’Oreille de Moscou
