STEIM Radio #7 Slow-cooked pork, steamed shrimp dumplings and Mongolian hotpot
In late 2011 and early 2012, I travelled to East Asia and had a chance to meet some dedicated artists and organizers in experimental music and sound art. This mix is made from works that I collected on this trip through swapping CDs with these people. Most pieces are intimate, harsh, and compressed reflecting a very personal audio space that they inhabit and work in. It's a stark contrast to all the grand scale projects and cheap knock-offs we are so used to seeing coming from this part of the world.
