We have an amazing line up, with Macondo, Sardine Is Back & The Wheel Is Broken, The Peppercorns and Anxt taking part – A vast array of musical styles that would suffice to be a brilliant gig alone except that now the bands will play a special collaboration song in their sets, complete with a small reading from each collaborating poet.
Spit-Tunes为每位诗人配备一支音乐组合，通过诗歌与音乐的碰撞结合完成特别的现场作品。我们有一个惊人的音乐阵容：Macondo, Sardine Is Back & The Wheel Is Broken, The Peppercorns和ANXT，风格多元，足以成为一个辉煌的演出。

This is a project that has never been attempted before in Beijing and we’re very lucky to have the best talents to bring it to life. Come to DDC on the 23rd February at 8pm as we make history by bringing Beijing’s vibrant poetry and music scene together to make something new and groundbreaking.

How the live show will work?
Step 1 - Bands read a selection of poetry from a number of poets and choose a poet to work with.
Step 2 - The poets and bands decide on extent of their collaboration and create a piece of music inspired by the poets poetry over a two week period.
Step 3 - The bands perform the collaboration piece with or without the poet on top of songs from their usual sets. The poets also read the collaboration poem with a few poems from their usual sets.
Macondo (math-rock, post-rock)
MACONDO 乐队做的是令人兴奋的音乐:受 70 年代迷幻摇滚启发,融合了器乐摇滚、后摇、数学摇滚和电子音乐。激扬的鼓点、飘渺复杂的吉他、极具攻 击性的贝斯,以及超然的合成器音效交织在一起,构建了其独特的音乐,在变 幻莫测的节奏驱动下,呈现某种氛围和空间感甚至心理压迫感。 Macondo make some of the most interesting and exciting music coming out of Beijing today: instrumental rock with elements of math-core, infused with vibes drawn from 70s psychedelic music, adding the production and sound of today’s electronic music. Their unique music shifts from sounds that are ambient and heavy, spacious and dense to atmospheric but rhythmically driven. Bombastic drumming, layered with lush floating guitar textures and earth-shaking energetic bass attack, and otherworldly synthesiser sounds.
自 2014 年成立始,Macondo 迅猛袭击北京音乐现场,他们的演出往往令观众 瞠目结舌,并被形容为“火山摇滚”。 Formed in 2014, the band quickly made a splash on the Beijing music scene, their live shows left audiences open-mouthed, describing it as ‘Volcano Rock’.
Sardine Is Back & The Wheel Is Broken (psycho-punk)
Sardine Is Back and the Wheel is Broken is an improvised psycho-punk band.
The Peppercorns (Psychedelic Rock)
The Peppercorns is a band that plays heavy psychedelic rock music rooted in a classic 70's style, drawing inspiration from prog and art rock. The band is guitar heavy with experimental synth however their songs still maintain a pop sensibility. Fronted by Edog Wonderlogg II with Kangaroo Zhong on guitar, Brain 2.0 on drums, and Yan Von3000 on bass. Get ready for helicopters, paratroopers, and atomic lizards.
