Inside China – their digital economy

2de287530bb802c5-DSC_0131

Currently, all music services in China offer music to consumers for free. For some, the music service is merely an appendage by which to draw in user traffic, which they then divert and monetize by other means, especially for the bigger portals like Baidu. It is rarely about the music at all, which is a sad state of affairs for the purist.

Are you considering to be an insider in the grossly huge potential market of China? IF the spectacle of music form, the representations of music genre in China. The moment we believe that the door is wide open is a smoke screen and a pipe-dream. In any form of music, the underground and the major recording artists are by far; it is not so often you can buy vinyl or in fact the outcome of finding foreign music is either pirated or sold in CD format, without the support from labels or artists. Yes they are still downloading, and in this hoarder of landscape, only live music and acts can be monetized. And for a large festival 330Yen or for about 30euros for a 3 days festival, I wonder where they can make back the money for the organizers.

Are we looking at the good ole days, not exactly good, but from a film buff, and the days for DVD films, the piracy for independent foreign films on the blackmarket in 2002, China was flourishing, rare copies of well known, special issue and out-of-print dvd films from classic, to modern and untold directors in the eastern bloc, European and art films are all hot selection in the black-market, pirated dvd film houses, selling for 10-30Yen a DVD-including boxset. And now I think music is looking likely similar with large well organized festivals in Top-tier cities like Beijing and Shanghai, Shenzhen maybe and Hong Kong definitely.

Film by masters and well know independent directors, French New Wave, German Existentialism/realism, documentaries and Art short film like Wim Wenders, Lar Von Trier from the earlier works are all sold in basement shop in the back of the shop in Shanghai and Shenzhen in the early 2001 in the dvd format.

From an exceptional rumor only, some more then 50,000 copies of records was transported across the Hong Kong boarder in to China end of last year, mostly secondhand classical and pop genre records, another rumor from unknown source, date back to the early 2013 that one or two entire vinyl pressing units was sold to an unknown buyer, but nothing have been told more about the opening of a pressing plant anywhere in the mainland China or across the border’s of Hong Kong, yet.

More and more records buyer’s in the mainland collectors are going out to find rare classical, pop and mint condition 80’s music in vinyl format.

這個比方沒有太多東西可給大家看。

There is no better stuff for other people to see, but sometimes I put a lot of effort in creating sound or music in a bad literature study XD (Intro Music has No names) 來一個無名樂響。Internet is like this, don’t like it don’t read here. Night time Music, good or bad?

I can’t write Chinese, but trying again! Dying to speak and starting a music label is logical? Yet funny but happy to continue to write. Back in Hong Kong for more than 10 years, people with the same interest are here, only if time will wait for anyone. In music we call this space or Spatial, also representation of time sequence. In both learning about Music or Chinese language has to be self taught, I use google. But this isn’t a place for us and neither it has become not a random access memory(only realization.) I speak Chinese everyday. It represent the meaning of an experimental sound artist but not important if it is all but about writing primary composition, keep on going!

Some compare the sound to the west, but people, really? Ask us about any interest as work. Can we see a renaissance?? IF is not me it’s not good…haha. Though long about getting someone to translate, Why do I need a translator?! The point is because only music meet science, not many audience see us produce music that are essence in time of music and producers. Slow music!? LOL

晚上的樂有用嗎?

可笑的是一些中文也不會用的我! 言亡也不是和開label的logic。但笑笑是開心的哬也要一值continue to write. 回國十多年香港也有了很多友人! 但時間不會 waiting for anyone. In music we call this space or Spatial, also representation of time sequence.

中文或是音樂都要自己學,你看書、我用google. 這個地方是沒有你我、也不是random access memory. 中國的方言也是長年可用的一們學舉。也是很象音樂experimential artist 的名字。沒有大不了!你天真也要作下去嗎? 有用的人或是比西方的sound?? 問我們的interests?? 真的像黃金時代? IF is not me it’s not good…haha.

Why do I need a translator?! 想了很多年了! 見地 because only music 科学也不多人會看我們做樂的味候也不會改的音樂是時代。慢慢的歌 是 slow music!?
