《觉》电影
获奖活动:《贵圈好乱》
城市:北京/上海

moxie

《贵圈好乱》是地下导演彭陌勰的第六部作品。但却是他第一部通过众筹制作的微电影。电影讲述了北京“同性恋”圈子中发生的故事,但是不同于以往以黑色基调描写同性恋的中国影片,《贵圈好乱》是一部非常阳光的影片。影片真实地记录了导演的17位同性恋朋友的日常生活,并淡化了对同性恋圈子以往的许多偏见。

《觉》演讲
获奖活动:2014乐骑越远 - 刘于思音乐骑行巡演+分享会

《觉》文学
获奖活动:《流浪歌手的回忆》上市预告(上海民谣联盟春季专场)
城市:上海

2013对中国民谣来讲是意义深重的一年,人们越来越开始接受这个曾经不太受大众青睐的音乐风格,本地以及国外民谣音乐人的也越来越负有人气。当然在民谣这样突飞猛进的背后也有一些功不可没的关键性人物和组织,比如上海民谣联盟从2010年就开始在上海各大Livehouse组织民谣演出,包括:吴雪颖、许飞宇、蔡礼梅、Samantha Sprole等国内外优秀民谣音乐人的上海专场。由上海民谣联盟出版的《流浪歌手的回忆》即将在4月发布,本次演出将作为发布预告,届时亦有精彩的民谣音乐表演。

《觉》音乐
获奖活动:杭州新声
城市:上海

music

杭州新声”里都是这些年来一直活跃在杭州本地的年轻人,这些年轻人根植于这座美丽的城市,用包含音乐、戏剧、艺术、文学、设计等不同形式努力发声。 1997年,“北京新声”被第一次提出,那个时代造就的音乐人我们已耳熟能详,2007年,“后北京新声”携着青春的破碎与美好,来势汹汹,北京,成为外地追梦者的心灵朝圣地。 我们把【杭州新声】称之为一次蓄谋已久的集体行动,杭州沉默了太久,也许你对杭州的记忆仅限于美丽的西湖,又或者是几乎每个音乐人都爱的,在西湖边举办的音乐节。而它对我们的意义在于:以拼贴去构建一个介于真实和虚幻之间的艺术空间,以我们熟悉的形式去阅读我们陌生的世界。

获奖活动:京味儿杂志Vol.2 第二期发布派对

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

Back in November we hollered at creative communities across Beijing and Shanghai to send in their JUE submissions. This year was special: we had bursaries up for grabs for those creative projects/events/ideas that needed a little extra love.

For each of the 7 JUE categories (JUE Music, JUE Art, JUE Film, JUE Literary events, JUE Performance, JUE Talks and JUE Community), we offered one JUE support package in each city. Each support package included the following:
-500RMB cash to use towards an event for printing and hard costs.
-A web flyer designed by one of our talented JUE designers.
-A highlight for the event in at least one edition of our JUE newsletter

We spent ages stressing about who to support with our JUE | Music + Art 2014 bursary program. It’s finally time: let us present to you our 2014 recipients!

JUE | Film
Project: Asian Cinema Week Premier -17 Gay Friends
City: Beijing & Shanghai

moxie
My 17 Gay Friends is Moxie Peng’s sixth film. Peng is one of Beijing’s most renowned underground filmmakers: his 2012 documentary Micro Search was featured on iQiyi.com and viewed a million times. But My 17 Gay Friends is his first to use Dreamore, a Chinese crowdfunding site that allows anyone to back a project in exchange for rewards set by the creator.

His latest story is an avant-garde short that digs into Beijing’s gay scene. As a counterpoint to the typical tropes of gay cinema – which are often gloomy, dark and depressing – Peng aimed to show the optimistic, light-hearted side of gay life. The 20-minute film will offer glimpses into the lives of 17 of Peng’s friends, showing their personalities, living situations, and love lives, whilst taking lighthearted jabs at many of the stereotypes and labels that cut across gay society.

JUE | Talks
Project: Liu Yusi Green Biking Talk + Concert
City: Beijing & Shanghai

Liu Yusi
Liu Yusi (of the Randy Abel Stable) is both a musician and a cycling fanatic, having travelled many a long distance by bike (including a trip from Beijing to Shanghai would you believe). Yusi will talk about how his cycling trips and riding experiences have influenced his life, his thoughts, and of course, his music. After the talks he will perform an intimate ambient-folk-blues set.

JUE | Literary Events
Project: Folk Rock United Book Reading and Music
City: Shanghai
2013 was a big year for the folk genre in China, with Chinese and foreign artists alike coming out the woodwork and playing shows in the music capitals of Shanghai and Beijing. Behind the genres resurgence are groups like Folk Rock United, which has previously put on low-key events including a Female Folk Rock series back in 2010 that featured Wu Xue Ying, XuFei Yu, Cai Li Mei, Pei Pei, and Samantha Sprole. This time the group will be giving a reading and live music performance in celebration of their newly authored book (set for publishing in April), entitled Reflections of a Nomadic Singer.  This show is the group’s major spring concert.

Project: Song Lyrics Translation Slam with Neemah (尼玛乐队) 
City: Beijing
In partnership with The Bookworm, we’ll be supporting a couple of word-heads with bursaries for what has been established as one of our favourite literary events. We pit two translators against each other to compare, contrast and clash over the nuances of translation. Each translator will present their versions of a selection of songs from Neemah’s (尼玛乐队) eclectic repertoire, which draws on Tibetan culture, instrumentation and other world music / folk influences.

JUE | Music
Project: JUE | Music x Lost Manual Present: Hangzhou New Noise
City: Shanghai

 

music

 

Hangzhou New Noise is a platform that showcases Hangzhou’s local creative talent, including everything from music to theatre, art, literature and design. The initiative was first conceived in Beijing back in 1997. This latest edition has been in the works for a while: it’s now time for this beautiful city to start making some noises! There is a whole generation of new musicians and artists waiting to be discovered. You can find more information on the event lineup on our listings, the Split Works website and Facebook.

Jingweir
We are supporting a release party for Beijing DIY magazineJingweir (Capital Taste), which will feature music performances by local artists and DJs, along with visual displays. This event will be for Volume 2 Issue 2 of the zine, which will be given to every attendee.

JUE | Community
Project: JUE x The Library Project
City: Beijing & Shanghai

This year, JUE will be partnering with The Library Project! The Library Project donates libraries to under-financed schools and orphanages in China, Cambodia and Vietnam. We all believe that education is the key motivator to breaking the cycle of poverty that exists in the developing world. In a word, education is change!

We will be incorporating charitable events and opportunities to collect donations throughout our event programming, and hope our partners too will get on-board to give back to the community. If we are successful we’ll be able to create something really unique for the kids: a full-on JUE multimedia library featuring books, CDs, arts & crafts and more! To kick-start the fund, we’ve allocated our bursaries for both cities to this initiative.

JUE | Art
Project: Mongolian Metal Heads Project w/ Altan Urag & Gaoshan

Metal Heads

 

The Mongolian Metal Heads Project consists of a collection of photo profiles featuring notable Mongolian music figures. Each is accompanied by a list of their most influential metal albums. This exhibition features special guests including Mongolian band Altan Urag, and the Gaoshan Liushui music ensemble.

JUE | Performance:
Project: Groove Entertainment Choreographer’s Showcase
City: Shanghai

Groove Entertainment

Groove is the first modern, youth-oriented project of its kind: it gives choreographers a venue where they have free artistic expression without the constraints of an artist, a director or a script.

Groove aspires to become a platform through which choreographers and dancers can connect with audiences, agents and industry professionals. With this network, Groove aims to mold the growth and development of new talents, honing the skills required for them to realise success as performers, and to provide opportunities for them to showcase their unique visions and creativity. JUE will assist the group to pull together a choreographer’s showcase and series of dance workshops.
