SAVAKA: Asia Experimental Music Currents
curated by Yin Yi, Adel Wang Jing
“SAVAKA: Asia Experimental Music Currents” aims to challenge global discourses of experimental music centered primarily on Western practices, to present diverse Asian experimental music contextualized within local milieus. If “global” promises a formula for success in the global art and culture market, “Asia” aims to conceive ecology of experimental music in which sonic currents converge and freely diverge.

“SAVAKA” focuses on cultural borders and differences silenced in global discourses. It contests the Western imagination of Asian culture—Zen Buddhism, mysticism and tai-chi. While New York, London and Paris are still global centers for the spread of Asian art concepts, this project, to be held in Shanghai, embodies a practical urgency and degrees of resistance.

New media technology facilitates the emergence of a fast-expanding virtual global network of experimental music. “SAVAKA” is important because it brings forth, for the first time, key figures who act as connectors in this virtual music network. Musicians will have actual conceptual and performative interactions in Shanghai. The hope is to actualize this virtual network and to invigorate local vitalization of Asia’s experimental music.
