Hear sounds and stories of Beijing
The Baitasi Remade project returns to its historic hutong location at BJDW with an eclectic mixture of projects focused on the hygge of personal connection, individual experience and the urban environment. These somewhat ambiguously titled 'Neighbourhood Warming Initiatives 2018', include forums on community building, displays of traditional Beijing crafts and a courtyard-based interactive community theatre, providing a platform for the residents of old Beijing to share their stories of the neighbourhood and city.
More abstract expressions of the Beijing experience come from London-based company Musicity, which creates 'architecture-inspired music and sound art'. On September 22, Baitasi Remade will showcase the pieces created for Beijing in a one-off concert. The founder of the project, BBC radio DJ Nick Luscombe, will also be present to discuss the development of Musicity and his experience with the architectural sounds of China.
