Contents

General Information

Location: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong

Date: October 1st - October 5th, 2008

Introduction

NOTCH Festival fuses the frontier of Nordic audiovisual culture with China’s emerging local scene, triggering the experiment in “contemporizing the future” or “de-futurization”.

The theme of NOTCH08 is “Comma Coma”, i.e. “non-stop coma”, reflecting the overwhelming state in a year of natural disasters, stock market crisis and price increases of oil and food. How will we cope with it? Many people have no idea. NOTCH08 presents a vision that we should start reducing to lessen our burden to the fragile earth.

30 Nordic artists with multiple identities are selected as “evangelists” of NOTCH’s philosophy. The music spans across Free Jazz, Improvisation, Electro-acoustic, Psychedelic Folk, Sound Art, Avant Garde Rock, Indie Pop and Ambient/Minimal Techno.
