Come out on Friday 11/19, Saturday 11/20 and Tuesday 11/23 for a 3-day showcase of Beijing’s underground experimental bands and solo artists who together comprise the wildly dynamic weekly Zoomin’ Night. If you haven’t already, you can read about Zoomin’s history and its coterie of musicians in Pete DeMola’s excellent We Live In Beijing Zoomin’ Night profile.


The Zoomin’ Night: Vol. 1 compilation CD is the inaugural release on Maybe Noise, an imprint of Maybe Mars. The cd itself comes in cool fold-out packaging and features one track apiece from nine Zoomin’ mainstays:

~ 心脏杂音 (Cardiac Murmur)
~ 昼夜售冰 (Ice Seller)
~ A4Destroyer
~ Carpet of Let
~ 路新配 (luxinpei)
~ Fat City
~ Wanderlust
~ Sister Oriented
~ 张守望 (Zhang Shouwang)

The cd also comes with a download code for 32 additional songs from these bands.

The cd will be officially released over the weekend of friday/saturday November 19/20 at D-22. If you come on one of these two nights you can pick up the cd for the discounted price of 20元. The party will continue on Tuesday, 23 November with 5 solo performances from some of the younger musicians in the mix. Line-ups for each show (plus a sample of some of the bonus tracks) below.


而后,11月23日的燥眠夜还将是这次首发演出的after party:参与合集录音的五位年轻音乐人将分别做他们的个人独奏表演。从古典音乐到氛围实验,从极简电子到混有工业声响的爵士乐,这是他们在乐队之外更加自我的尝试。
