Presented by China Residencies, Found Sound China is a genre-bending international collective and music diplomacy fellowship that brings artists from the U.S. and China together for a month of sound collection and collaborative music production. With Hip hop, beat-making, and field recording as creative pillars, the program brought together six music producers of various backgrounds for a residency and tour in Yunnan and Beijing in July 2018. Found Sound China will present a showcase of two artists from the residency, representing the Chinese and US fellows:
Jam No Peanut (New York, NY) - aka MC Tingbudong, bilingual chinese rapper, multimedia artist, and revolutionary political activist. A Fulbright Scholar who studied hip hop culture in China, Jam No Peanut's internationalist politics resonate in his music, as he switches between english and mandarin in politically charged verses.
Yehaiyehan (Shanghai, China) - aka FadedGhost is an electronic/experimental music producer and songwriter, and sees herself as a collector of song and sound. She uses music to create her own one-of-a-kind universe, constantly pushing the limits of musical possibility.
