TANSO (which is Mandarin for 'Discover'), a new organization set up to spotlight new & modern music from China is proud to present SOUNDEYE from April 25 - 27. 

A Free 3 day screening event of Documentaries, Films, Music Videos, Live Performance and Talk about the vibrant new Chinese Music Scene


 This three day screening event at U of T's Hart House will explore the vibrant new music scene in China. We will show rare, unseen & exciting footage from a diverse range of artists, covering a variety of musical genres: from Punk, Electronica, Experimental Noise, sound art, Post Wave to New Folk and Rock. Two feature length documentaries will provide a concise overview of the cutting edge musical movements in Hong Kong & Mainland China. We are also screening a variety of music videos, which should interest artists, die-hard music followers, casual music fans or simply those with an interest in anything Chinese.


SOUNDEYE will spotlight the coolest Indie labels from all over China, such as Shenzhen's WE PLAY (run by Zen Lu), Beijing's Shansui, Hong Kong's NoiseAsia (founded by the multi-faceted Dickson Dee), and the well known Beijing imprint Subjam (run by the prolific Yan Jun). These names are unfamiliar in the West, but they are the future of Chinese new music - an emerging movement of new and innovative artists.


TANSO wishes to highlight all aspects of the exciting new music scene from East Asia - including the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore. SOUNDEYE is the first event in a series that will open Canadians' doors to a world of creativity that few have yet to discover. We are committed to bringing the best of China's various independent music scenes, artists working in new media & sound art.


TANSO is a non-profit organization whose mandate is to build a bridge between Canada and China by facilitating cultural exchange via music and art. Join us at our inaugural event as we welcome Spring with some aural & visual stimulation.



Time: April 25, 26, 27, 2008

Location: The Hart House, East Common Room, U of T Downtown Campus
