In the world where we believe the lies holds the final judgement of the truth, and the truth will foretold the how to preceive the world but nothing as the truth. Yes we might have all been smitten by the outcome of the journey into the **fictionless world of jubilee.**
He Begins with the name my Son in Mandrian, Chinese. ^^
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.
In the precise manner of speaking, I am getting abit over anger at some of these Asia nations, mostly become of some, timely and untold ideas to differentiate independent film producer, or music(producer) within the APAC, that we no longer could make proceedings with self-censorship. As in this case for piracy or copyrights, or from dealing with royalties or on the behalf of adaptations, on musical freedom from playbook(society of playing copyrighted materials,) this on one hand they play their games of “12 Angry Men” and then formalize this perspective of the act of international organization for multi-nations bipartian, or “bomboclatt” from the entry act of storytelling and then they act on their other head(s.) like intellectuals wannabe.
It is very obvious to everybody playing the double-standard for a (Dire Strait) rather than double take, artfully. This act is often assumed if anything but alright with the local is alright in theory (no-such-thing….)
The withstanding of nothingness is believed that the interest of listening to dance music has not gained much by the trust of the establishments, rather by this integral strength of the producers themselves, they are really a body without organs and without any advances on progress or support from foreign devils (wham!)
This fear comes from the usual raven, and by taking up penmanship, these thoughts goes out to those (REM) whom thinks only towards pop culture and generalization of those whom find cultural assassination is a processing or a boycott and byproduct of activist, blacklister and freedom to downloads in consent. Our copyleft of free-software foundations(Opensource) are in nomansland, or in these kind of perspective of negative PSA in APAC, there is nothing more about branding, but organization from the following spectulation of formula studies.
1.National interest (GDP/automata)
2.Information retrieval (productions in all form of content)
3.Racial for socialism for the improvement on popular culture (policy in arts)
4.Musica’ for identical in cultural censorships (copyrights/content/ownerships)
5.Banality and dogmatic (system architect)
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
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!?
Technics turntable the beginning at the end of the crossroad of Technics SL-1200MKII series
I would like to be able to begin with the history of the most influential instrument of the last half of the 20th century. The turntable that have been the history of the most heretic instrument of all time in the vinyl culture.
This device have been out of production since 2010
This is an instrument of two and a half decade of influence amount turntablist and DJ. This is an extralrdinary period for the rise of the DJ culture. Amount the equipment the turntable and the Technics brand have had to became the only instrument for the performance of this very creative and rationalé for DJ. Their artform of understanding the unique identity amount producer and instrumentalist, relying on the DJs to select the tunes, the culture of the Technics SP-1200 MKII had to be the one for any professional DJ/turtablist….
The movement of a very important era where the rise of the CD from the former cassette tape and pre- scratching of the hip hop vinyl movement. The amount not only Hip Hop DJ was relying on the Technics SP-1200 as “the instrument”, amount to the last half of the 20th century vinyl have to be the choice of medium for musician and DJ and to become the choice for collectors. But without this turntable, all those DJ and want to be without feathered bird, non-usable content records like these decks we need to recalled…
Technics was indeed the defacto instrument of choice, there are many companies and manufacturer out there while could not penetrate those professional turntablist to convert and represent this DJ culture in the last two and three decade in music instrumental success like what Technics SP-1200 did for the music industry. Hereto the movement for real instant culture of pop music created another genre not in Hip Hop and turntablist scratching, the electronic musician have a mass of followers amount the DJ who begin to see the return of analogue sounds; from the experimental independent label and of Bass/ Breaks, to dubstep producers, nonetheless Techno crowds and DJ are largely Technics fan cum DJ. There is really why no other brand out there able to find a niche into these DJ and collector as for the decline in music records and CD sells, the market is uniquely driven by a standard that is only the defacto instrument for a culture that transformed so rapidly by the introduction of new technology like internet and P2P file transfer. What internet have bought us to an arrested development for easy accessible to other people’s library and soon caught on by big labels and music companies to use internet as their primary distribution platform. Although the aspect for those have anh have not a Technics are finding a hard time to get a hold of turntable from the firsthand market. Since it is out of production in 2010 by the Panasonic company who have own this Technics brand. The documentation is for the purpose of revealing how technology from today have transformed the function of this movement and created a culture of an art form musical style.
Over the years the instrument of choice is not a control surface or a device that link up with anything but is within the history of the most analogue recording format of our human history, the vinyl is a format that proceed this last century for the only play and recording medium that is still in use today. The record is only a format today where music is produced and to be sold to the masses by all others like tape, Minidisc and CD, the record format survived much into the 21st century. The vinyl or a record have transformed the culture of music just like the turntable have changed the culture of performance in music, within this last two decade, a new format for audio and visual have revolutionary not only the music culture, the digital format have created a new landscape for production forthe art and turn the world a very connected global market place but on steroids. This new file sharing culture and the internet have killed much of the physical format industries in not only music, but the aspect we play music and perform them.
The turntable from Panasonic Corp under the brand technics have absolutely dominated the DJ culture in the last 3 decades for performance DJ and artists. The dance music and Hip-hop genre had also suggested that the instrumentalist and producer is creating special tracks for records and vinyls and uniqueness in the natural texture of a record’s groove to put quality over quantity. As the mass begin to find the groove in nightclubs and dance festivals across the world, the popularity of so called underground music begins to emerge to our radio and popular media, and although the diversity of this new movement is only a small faction on the world stage as mainstream pop culture like Michael Jackson super star still have a denomination over the very super star DJs of those days. And as long as you are in the west capitalistic countries, your party will need DJ.
In the time of this publication, the documentation is already kind of out dated due to the re-release of the 3rd generation Technics Turntable.
