THE PERFORMERS

CT-808

Born in 1981, Qingdao, Zhu Wenbo moved to Beijing nearly 15 years ago. He has formed two experimental / underground rock duos before: Fat City (2008-2012) and Xiao Hong & Xiao Xiao Hong (2010-), meanwhile improvising with rock bands and different background musicians, or performing solo under the name CT-808. In this project, Zhu uses simple instruments or objects, and produces straightforward, minimalistic performances.
Since 2009, Zhu has been organizing the weekly experimental / improvisation / noise performance series Zoomin’ Night every Tuesday. A lot of Beijing’s new generation experimental musicians began their performance at Zoomin’ Night.

Mikko Savela

Mikko is a guitarist of Finnish origin, born in Sweden, currently living in Shanghai. After exploring different genres of music with various groups, he turned to improvisation and started to experiment with different ways of playing the guitar. Today he prefers playing his guitar horizontally, using it rather as a percussion instrument by plucking the strings with both hands and hitting the guitar body with metallic objects. He also uses different kinds of microphones and electronics.
