Special Guest - TEMPLE RAT (Kagerou, G42 / CN) Live + DJ Set
13 Dec, Friday
Mei grew up near the vibrant megacity Chengdu in the lush Western China Sichuan Basin.
At the age of 9 she began to learn the traditional Chinese Erhu, a truly mysterious folk instrument, two-stringed, played with a bow and made from carved wood and snake skin, sometimes known in the Western world as the Chinese violin or the Chinese two-stringed fiddle. Inspired by her passion for the electronic music of Chengdu’s hyped underground clubs, May started to explore a combination of traditional Chinese folk music with minimalistic techno tunes.
“I usually start my sets by playing the ErHu alone, to create a sense of space, mystery and surprise among my audience. Then, gradually, I add electronic or industrial sounds and instruments to fill the space with ever more sensations, slowly bringing my audience on an emotional journey, producing a different kind of atmosphere.”MEI constantly improved her skills to express a unique blend of live ErHu performances with 4x4 electronic beats, eventually starting to perform as Temple Rat from 2015 on. Her music is influenced by sparks of both, the natural and religious environment she grew up in, further inspired by ancient oriental rhythms as well as by her favorite 90’s ACID elements.
So far her musical career has brought her to cities all over China such as Shanghai,Beijing, Chengdu, Suzhou, Yunnan and festivals all over Europe like the Château Perché Festival (France), the Summer Story Festival (Spain) and the ADE Festival (Netherlands).YinYang Great Wall Festival,Boiler Room ShangHai 2019.
