In May 18th - 21th, we’ll launch Wetware: the first ever Douban Music Week. Over the last 9 months we have put together Wetware, a 4 day event at Tango & School Bar in Beijing, featuring progressive, contemporary music styles, visual arts, talks, workshops and technology. With the performance of 60 musicians from worldwide, you will have the most magic experience.
Wetware’s main stage (located on the 3rd floor of Tango) is its spiritual core. We have indie rock pioneers like Low and Cass McCombs, as well as Stephen O’Malley, founder of drone metal group SunnO))) and modular synth pioneer Alessandro Cortini. The originator of IDM，Mouse on Mars will bring their creative performance.
On the Wetware’s second stage (1st floor of Tango), multimedia artists Kim Laughton and Jonathan Zawada will turn the stage into a ever-flowing, ever-changing digital landscape, a world which will develop and evolve throughout the festival. Performing in this digital environment will be legendary producer Nightmares on Wax, footwork originator RP Boo and Teklife member DJ Earl, PC Music’s A.G. Cook.
Wetware’s third stage (at School Bar) is an extension of the ‘Outside the Billboard’ spirit of Douban Artists. Diel Guik, whose works are rooted in the traditional music and culture of the Miao people; Liujiafan, a young band that sings in the old dialect of Teochew; and Wong Hin Yan, a singer-songwriter with a social focus on local life and thoughts in Hong Kong.

Forum & Live Performance with Cutting-edge Synthesizers at Douban Music’s Wetware Festival
The forum will be held on the afternoon of May 19th on the second floor of Tango. Later that evening, the engineers from the forum will give live music at School Bar.
Synthesizers of all dimensions and from different eras will be seen on-stage at Douban Music’s Wetware Festival. Aside from hearing them in live performances, Douban Music has invited scientists and engineers from four cutting-edge synthesizer brands — Elektron, Make Noise, Verbos Electronics and Teenage Engineering — to present an afternoon forum during the Wetware Festival. What design philosophies and aesthetic concepts do the instrument makers of this new generation espouse? What are their opinions on the prospects of music and musical instruments for the future? Han Han, vocalist of the band Duck Fight Goose, and Benjamin Bacon, musician and designer of Shanghai’s Dogma Lab, will host the discussions.
