8PM: Gao Jiafeng - voice / dj / performance (China)
Gao Jiafeng is a DJ/musician/performer based in Shanghai. He recently majorly performs with speaking and pre-recorded audio.
Feng is simultaneously ernest and hilarious. Irreverent and dead serious. He's as likely to dryly recount, word for word, a series of mind-numbing late night Facebook messages with an overly serious "electronic music composer" as he is to reveal his obvious musical prowess.
9PM: Practical Metallurgy
Patrick Breiner - reeds
Daniel Carter - winds
Sana Nagano - violin
Lester St Louis - cello
Practical Metallurgy is a mash-up of two ensembles led by reedist Patrick Breiner. He will be joined by string virtuosos Sana Nagano and Lester St Louis (Red Metal) as well as multi-instrumental wizard and catalyst and conduit of wisdom and love Daniel Carter (Practical Mysticism). The gallery space at happylucky no.1 and its rich, reverberant acoustics will be the defacto fifth member of the band.
