Working with Worldwide FM in the UK, Merrie Records in China and with the support of property developer Xintiandi, we’re connecting three UK musicians and three Chinese musicians with the culture and sounds of each other’s countries as part of a new programme, Distant Dialogues.
The musicians – Wonky Logic, Kayla Painter and Hector Plimmer in the UK, Gooooose, Shii and Gogoj in China – will pose a question to the people of China and the UK respectively and invite the public to submit their audio, visual and text responses which will form the basis for a new track from each of the artists. Along the way, there will be a window into the creative process through social media updates and events and the artists will convene using video technology to share their sketches and initial thoughts.
Call for submissions:
Submissions for Shii, GOOOOOSE and gogoj can be:
1. sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, please include the project title in the subject line.
2. PM’d to the individual artist’s Instagram account.
3. posted on Instagram with @merrierecords in the description.
