about

The three tracks were recorded in Beijing. I came to Beijing for the 2010 Sally Can’t Dance Music Festival, after which I lived in a house at He Ping Li. The TV was broadcasting an old soap opera named “Chen Zhen”, which recalled my memories of childhood. It was a great story for me as a kid – I remember that all such kind of films and soap operas were called “Hong Kong Kongfu drama”. It was really happy to improvise with “Chen Zhen” – I even gave a chuckle of “ha” when I heard the line “we can only rely on Chen Zhen now”.
And the “Improvising with TV, 2” was recorded without any preparation. When you hear the sounds of TV ads, I still had no idea of what to play.
It is the same afternoon with “Chen Zhen”. What attracted me afterwards was the flavor of Beijing life from the hutong outside of the window. You know it was quite normal moment for north people, but to me as someone from the south, it was much more interesting. This track is selected from three similar tracks I recorded in that environment.
