Special EventArchverse Launching Party“Meetverse”

👋 Join the party!:beibei.city

Meetverse Party, as a side-project of Archverse Beibei, is an online music party that takes place in the Dragon City area of Decentraland.

Unlike conventional “online performances”, the Meetverse Party has a more open mechanism of the sound – it inherits the animal-like ecstasy of the millennial the Wild Great Wall rave party, but does not exclude other musical genres from participating in it to rewrite themselves. And if we subconsciously assume that the sound that emerges from a new technology should be the so-called “more technological” sound, then we are already in the technology’s trap.  How do we use and even cheat this virtual space to make it a better place while it is naturally getting insaner? Just having more music styles is not enough, more urgent thing is that in this online party happened in Decentraland, participants can make random sounds by interacting with each other, and these off-stage sound fragments are simultaneously performed with the music on stage, and are collected by a “total radio” in this universe. Everyone participates in the construction of the “soundscape” of the zone, so the centralization of the right to make sound brought about by the stage is expected to be melted down, and this “soundscape”, together with the liquid historical messages and the rapidly changing technological platform, has become the Meetverse Party’s telescope to look into the past, present and future – Even if our watching is turning into a desperate action due to the speculation of some people on this platform. 

Let me put two quotes here: ” It is only for the sake of those without hope that hope is given to us.”  (Benjamin); “We only wish to have a hope as a revenge.” (Mu Dan) – The Meetverse Party is the MEET of despair and hope, and the “MEET” is an action that is always always always “happening”.

The Meetverse party featured six musicians: Kunming-based coldwave and electronic duo Cephalosis and its member JH’s solo-project Starstar(星之星),Belgium-based big-band Neptunian Maximalism, Shanghai-based experimental musician Yutian(於闐) and post-internet pop producer/singer Jiafeng(高嘉丰), and the Japanese DJ and experimental electronic musician Liquid Farmer, who now lives in Zhejiang Province.

Line-up

Liquid Farmer (Japanese electronic musician, now lives in Songyang, Zhejiang)In 2020 he moved to Songyang to continue his farming life, making didgeridoo and playing music. The farming life influences the creativity of his music. His live electronic music style includes phy flow, down tempo, deep trance, ambient, progressive, etc. In his electronic music, he will use didgeridoo, shakuhachi, mouth string and other world folk instruments to join in his music.
Cephalosis is a duo from Kunming, China. Li Hao and Hu Jie both like same music, Europe industrial, dark ambient and underground electronic music which make Cephalosis become who it is now. They signed to Ruby Eyes Records in 2017 and put out debut album Voluntary Ambition in January 2019. They followed with Spring Styxin 2020, a more powerful and firmer record than last one. Cephalosis is inactive and obscure, changing in a way they expect.
Yu Tian Experimental musician, lead singer and guitarist of Sweet Child, creator and director of Yao Media Lab, currently an associate professor at the Shanghai Institute of Design, China Academy of Art
Jiafeng Producer/singer-songwriter Jiafeng creates a distinct style of Chinese pop music that provides extreme, playful and nostalgic auditory experience. Being a non-fundamentalist on music genres, he practices on a variety of topics: pop, consumerism, underground electronics, rock throwback, and most importantly – the unique Chinese internet culture. He has collaborated with significant Chinese pop stars such as Da Zhangwei, Zhang Qiang and AKINI JING, and also been involved in the world’s electronic/hyper pop scenes with figures such as Catnapp, Bloodz Boi, felicita, Galen Tipton, Recovery Girl, etc.
Starstar is the moniker of singer/producer Hu Jie, a bedroom electronic pop music project untethered by any genre expectation. In each period her playlist shapes her different senses of music but certain female artists who are talented always influence and encourage her.
Neptunian Maximalism Belgian experimental noise/doom/drone/psychedelic/fusion jazz band Neptunian Maximalism a.k.a. NNMM whose 2020 debut album “Éons” made the annual charts of several media outlets. They call themselves a community of multi “occultural engineers” (*Genesis P-Orridge). This project was initiated by Guillaume Cazalet (CZLT ; SOL KIA ; ZAÄAR) and the veteran saxophonist player Jean Jacques Duerinckx (ZAÄAR ; Ze Zorgs) in Brussels in 2018, especially during a residency with the two drummers Sebastien Schmit (K-Branding) and Pierre Arese (AKSU).

Dlist

Tooto Too is the “too” of too much. It could be either adj. or adv.; and “Tooto”the “too……to” from “too……to do something”.

Bu Zhi Fu To understand another animal is definitely hard for an animal. Miss Bu Zhi Fu, in her second year of Master at China Academy of Art, hides her tastes in piles of old paper, stirring cute with catastroph. She is good at music-montage, like a wondering alley puppy, pooping rainbows under the poles at the crossroad. Her music list is usually suspicious but not suspended, offering her audiences a happy puffy treat. She is ued to taking performance seriously, to bring audiences happiness with her ernest list!
