Zhang Ding’s Enter the Dragon presented by the ICA and K11 Art Foundation consists of a series of daily performances and spontaneous collaborations over a two week period, the programme showcases an eclectic mix of emerging artists, DJs and musicians selected by Zhang Ding in collaboration with NTS Radio from open submissions and London’s musical undercurrent.
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."
Amnesia Scanner make sonically extreme, futuristic club music that tackles philosophical, sociological, political and metaphysical themes and challenges the fragile nature of what is ‘real’. The debut release As Live  blended fresh, rapidly-changing rhythm patterns found in bass music sub-genres with dramatic outbursts of mangled samples. They are currently working on their first physical release. Visit Amnesia Scanner's SoundCloud page.
