Original. Our common denominator.
We celebrated our diversity and are united by our commonality as originals. We are China all Originals.
The project comprises of Kang Mao, the lead singer of the Beijing-based raucous punk rock band SUBS, as one of the original and now longest-standing bands in China’s indie music scene; Beijing Fixies (Gi Ming, Wang Peng, Tang Chenshu, Liang Xing, and Xiu Zilue) as China’s original fixed gear bike crew; Li Jianhong as China’s innovator in experimental music by capturing and mixing ambient noise, and Zhuo Dan Ting as China’s rare female tattoo artist who combines Chinese and Western ideals and cultural references to pursue own her individuality in a provocative manner.
We traveled, shot, and edited all in an amazing 5-day journey around Shanghai and Beijing (Click on the links above to watch the videos).Kudos to NeochaEDGE and Ka Xioaxi, a Shanghai based analog film photographer for the great work.
