JUE | Music + Art 2014: Who Am I? Where Is This Place? What Happened To March?

两个城市超过100个活动,从本土到国际知名的表演艺术家和粉丝们热情的支持,究竟是什么是第六届觉 | 音乐 + 艺术节如此充满活力? 感谢大家对觉音乐艺术节和本土社区团体的帮助与支持。觉音乐艺术节作为一个平台,是一个把许多错综复杂的独立项目联系在一起的机会使其变得更为重要。觉不单单是一个在我们身边的活动,觉就是我们,一个让我们彼此了解的机会。

让我们来回顾一下“觉音乐艺术节201” 的几个难忘的活动:

音乐

我们请到了英国的说唱教父Blak Twang, 来自新加坡的MONSTER CAT,后摇强团And So I Watch You from Afar, 来自美国洛杉矶的 双人电子乐队Baths 和中国武汉的花轮乐队 来表现不同的音乐风格。

 

表演

表演活动中得“觉之最”要数《视而不见》的首次中国巡演了,分别在北京和上海。

表演着是音速青年(Sonic Youth)的创立人Lee Ranaldo和他的妻子Leah Singer. 视而不见是一个多媒体表演,是现场音乐,表演,电影的相结合。 他们的表演是图像与声音融合的展现以及无数可能性的汇聚。

艺术

觉新一代摄影比赛是一个开放的平台让所有中国的年轻人(包括他们移居国外的朋友们)能够在觉音乐艺术节中聚在一起,来一次视觉的对话。新一代摄影比赛的重心和觉的目标结合起来的话就是为年轻的艺术家们和有创造性的人们一个展示自己的机会。参与者将提供自己在觉音乐艺术节期间拍摄的照片,然后将会有一个由中国艺术家,摄影家,媒体和美术馆负责人组成的专业的评审团来评判。获胜者将会得到一笔由Vans提供的特别奖金。

觉和艺起(surge art)的合作也将在北京形成一个新的美术空间。艺起为年轻的和新涌现出的艺术家提供一个平台去向世界展示他们的概念艺术作品,并因为这些作品为那些艺术爱好者提供了不错的购买选择,所以他们也可以为此而感到骄傲。“觉暖”市集上还会有一个无声拍卖,所收集的资金将会全部捐献给图书馆计划。供筹得。。

 

讲座

污染和空气质量恐怕不幸成为生活在北京和上海的居民最关心的问题。刘于思是一个音乐人也是个可持续生活方式倡导者,在觉上演了音乐骑行巡演+分享会,通过他的演讲和音乐向大家传递绿色生活的理念。

**更新 刘于思从自己的中国南部自行车骑行活动中拿出了470人民币捐献给了图书馆计划。对此表示感谢。

 

圈子

觉音乐艺术节的最后一天,“觉暖”创意市集在北京的face bar举行,face bar是一家精品酒店,餐馆和酒吧。在这么一个春意盎然的日子,这有很多创意摊位售卖自己做的非常棒的东西,包括复古服饰,唱片,手工艺品和很多美食。现场的音乐更为这愉悦的一天增添了色彩。

电影

觉和亚洲电影周第二年席卷而来,为北京和上海的观众们带来了最具名声的独立电影。 其中开幕影片是《仰光的召唤》,一部讲述缅甸朋克乐队生活的电影。

这是一部记录了缅甸最著名的朋克乐队,一群对现实不满却充满雄心斗志的年轻人。

文学

2013年澳大利亚获奖诗人Jesse Brand的表演惊艳了上海和北京的观众。表演中,Brand通过叙述一些生活在中心的人们的观点探索了现在这个糟透了的社会。

此外,在上海和北京的每一个活动现场,我们鼓励每一个参与者能够为2014觉音乐艺术节中的图书馆计划捐钱,或者以拍卖的方式来支持这个计划,到时候我们将会在河北的一个贫困地区的小学盖一个图书馆。觉音乐艺术节相信教育是去打破贫穷并在这个发展中的世界存活下去的关键因素。最后我们通过所有的努力共筹集了1.7773万元

最后 感谢大家

“觉”并不是一个商业性的活动。你会发现不像其他的音乐活动,在过去的两年里我们很少有商业性的品牌参与。 但是我们活动的成功举办在很大程度上是源于本土媒体以及活动场所提供方的帮助。

最后要向所有的媒体朋友,撰稿人,采访人,和所有在微博上帮助宣传的人员。还有LeTV等主要的节目平台。 感谢后来加入的供应商以及第三方合作伙伴LOVE BANG 和 Electric East.

感谢所有人。

============================================================================

Two cities, over 100 events, a swathe of artists from the local to the internationally renowned, amazing support from fans, and a single question: where did the energy come from? Thanks for helping spread the word and supporting your local creative communities. JUE | Music + Art is a platform: an opportunity for many projects to come together to form a collective that’s more significant than their intricate individual parts. JUE isn’t a thing that exists outside ourselves, it is us, it’s knowing each other.

Let’s take a look at a few memorable moments from JUE | Music + Art 2014:

Music
Performances from the likes of UK rapper Blak Twang, Singapore’s MONSTER CAT, And So I Watch You from Afar, L.A. electro-pop act Baths, and Chinese Wuhan stalwarts Hua Lun, ensured that there was a live show for everyone’s tastes.

 

Performance
A JUE favourite was Sight/Unseen, which saw its China debut in Shanghai and Beijing. Presented by founding member of Sonic youth Lee Ranaldo and his wife Leah Singer, Sight/Unseen was a multimedia performance work that brought together live music, performance, and film in a single setting. Their performances were explorations in how sound and image interact, with elements of chance embraced.

 

Art
JUE partnered with SURGE Art – a platform for young and emerging artists to display their concepts and artwork to the world. SURGE prides itself on providing art lovers an affordable option to purchase art. An auction was held at the launch party and all proceeds went toward The Library Project charity, raising an astounding 6400RMB.

In Shanghai JUE partnered with the Western International School of Shanghai to host a live graffiti performance by Pop art-inspired street artist Jo Di Bona. Local and international students and art fans alike participated in a fun-packed day of arts, enjoying live music from Shanghai Folk United on the side.

Talks
Pollution/environmental concerns and finding ways to live more responsibly are top of the mind for all who live in Beijing and Shanghai. Liu Yusi – a musician and advocate for sustainable lifestyles – hosted a Green Biking Talk + Concert, spreading positive “green” messages through his talk and artistic activities.

**UPDATE Liu Yusi contributed 470RMB from his  mini-bike tour in south China, which will go towards The Library Project. Many thanks for his efforts!

 

Community
JUE | Music + Art culminated in the Warm-up to Spring creative market, held at FACE Beijing. On a gorgeous spring day, a host of creatives set up shop for six hours selling home made treats, vintage clothing, records, hand made crafts, and great gourmet food. Live music from the Hutong Yellow Weasels and friends set the atmosphere for a fun-filled day.

Film
JUE’s Asia Cinema Week returned for a second year to provide viewers in Shanghai and Beijing a chance to watch some of Asia’s most celebrated independent films. The opening event kicked off with Yangon Calling – Punk In Myanmar, a film that follows the lives of discontented youths, and aspirational figures from some of Myanmar’s best-known punk bands, including Side Effect and CultureShock.

Literary Events
Jesse Brand, winner of the 2013 Australian Slam Poetry Championship, took on the literary genre with a fresh style that even featured rapping alongside self-produced tracks. At his performances, Brand explored the state of contemporary dystopia through the perspectives of those individuals at its centre.

Throughout the events across Shanghai and Beijing, participants were encouraged to make charitable donations to The Library Project. The festival’s goal was to raise enough to build a library for underprivileged schoolchildren in the Hebei countryside. JUE | Music + Art and The Library Project believe that education is the key motivator to breaking the cycle of poverty that exists in the developing world. A total of 17,773RMB was raised through the community’s collective efforts.

Final Thanks

JUE isn’t a commercial affair – you’ll notice that unlike pretty much every other music event that’s taken place over the last two years, there was little commercial brand presence. But having said this, the festival is totally dependent on the help of other local businesses and press who provide us with venues, coverage, and sometimes even free booze (wheeey).

This final thanks goes out to all the media pals who wrote up articles, interviews, and the occasional Weibo post to help push our shows. Supporters over at some of the key channels we depend on to get cool content out such as LeTV also deserve a thumbs-up and a standing ovation.  Thanks to the vendors who were affected by the market postponement but were still willing to get involved later. Thanks to the third parties including LOVE BANG and Electric East who helped bring over some awesome acts.

Big-up the 大家.
