My second playlist for Peril magazine’s You Don’t Sound Asian project explores music from around the Sinosphere: China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and beyond.
“Unlike the pandemic, the playlist doesn’t have a case definition or an epicentre. It’s just an endless filament of sound, the connections between the tracks both tenuous and elemental. It’s as open-ended as Chineseness could be.”
Have a listen – and check out my other playlist, Teacup in a Storm, as well.
I’ve created a spreadsheet of Australian critics in response to the lack of diversity in criticism. You can add yourself via this Google Form.
Hopefully it’s a useful resource for artists, venues, publicists and commissioning editors to access a wider pool of critics. You can view the spreadsheet here. Please share with all your critically-minded mates.
“Corporeal yet digitally transmissible, music was something to hold onto – a teacup in a storm.”
Here’s a playlist I made for Peril magazine’s You Don’t Sound Asian project. Put it in your ears.
