Artists and musicians are performing music from a range of genres including acoustic, ambient, electronic, experimental, industrial, punk and techno, and the programme will showcase talent from London’s vibrant underground music scene, as well as exclusive contributions artists and musicians from Germany, UK and the US.
Enter the Dragon is a platform where Zhang Ding further explores his longstanding interest in "the stimulating and chemical interaction between sound, stage and the immediate emotional response of the audience."
Cam Deas is an experimental musician based in London. Working in an entirely live environment, Deas creates a kind of real-time musique concrete, resulting in an abstract yet organic contemporary electronic music. Also known for his work as a guitarist, Deas’s debut LP for his electronic work, String Studies, is a suite that focuses on using the 12-string acoustic guitar as the sole sound source of this live musique concrete: a wooden frame to an electronic music. String Studies was released 15 December 2014 on Alter. Visit Cam Deas's SoundCloud page.
