SHANGHAI AVANT-GARED FESTIVAL @LOFAS 【E-Ticket】
B1-09, Sunny Walk, No. 230, Ruiping Road, Xuhui District, Shangha
Friday, December 27th
In the middle of the 20th century, the unpredictability of avant-garde art as a form of music expression emerged as a pursuit of highly pure creation and listening without any attached meaning.
Experiment with music, explore emotions, explore forms and explore the boundaries of sound through music producers' "new" editing methods, "new" recording methods, "new" Musical Instruments, "new" composition methods and so on.

The profound understanding to avant-garde jazz and free improvisation is beyond his peers, empowering him with more possibilities.
Exchanging energy in the tranquil and sudden outbursts of the mad sound force field. His performance of improved noise style reminds people of Dionysus, full of euphoria and mean while sentimental. With great originality and creativity, his style is not restricted within in free improve or noise, even drone or rock could be adopted by him and enriched his music.

Our ultimate BAD friend ANKAR, plays Good techno music.

/LE CRABE ET LA MECANO/
The collective "Le Crabe et la Mécano” is a multi-skilled artist duo that was created in 2014 in Shanghai.
Le Crabe lives in Geneva, she is artist and fashion designer. La Mecano resides in Paris, she is a plastic artist.
They both shared a profound passion and comment interest for graphic arts: specially drawing.
Le Crabe et la Mécano are able to create their own universe by emphasizing on the dialogue and exchange developed by the shared experience of drawing ; by fusing and constantly conversing with each other through the use of endless strokes in order to generate and form only one. A spontaneous choreography where listening to the beat of each other’s movement is essential to achieve balance and harmony.
The evolution of the collective's drawings is a symbiotic organic process where each protagonist fertilises the grounds and gesture of the other. As a consequence such process brings into existence an art piece where one is unable to distinguish the work of one artist from the other. Instead one is urged to look at their work as a unified whole. Le Crabe et la Mécano express themselves on different artistic platforms such as fanzines, murals, and tattoos among others which offers them the freedom and opportunity to be artistically active and to put an accent on the present, the now.
Experimental music is not like the music we usually listen to bring some comfort in our hearts. Whether it is uplifting, depressing, inexplicable, repugnant, or soul-baptising, it is the pure experience of the audience's mixed experiences.
