SPRAWL at the Charterhouse Bar
** THE LAST SPRAWL OF 2004! **
DATE: weds 10th November
live line up:
FM3 (Bip Hop, Staalplaat) - live
fm3 play quiet music. very, very quiet music. The kind of music that
turns up your ears and makes you sit. Very, very still... Some
reviewers describe fm3's live act as "daring." Audience members
often call it "cathartic." Others say listening to fm3 is painful... fm3 is
US-born but long-term China resident Christiaan Virant. Active
in the Beijing music underground for nearly a decade, Virant
founded fm3 in late 1999 as China's first-ever experiment in live,
abstract electronica. Working with lo-fi computer software and
a host of home-built instruments, fm3 distills ancient Chinese
folk tradition into a barely-there organic glow.
