about

White was formed by Shou Wang and Shen Jing in February 2005, and
has quickly become one of the most acclaimed outfits in the Beijing new
music scene. White’s sound is ever evolving, spiralling outwards from the core stars of noise and minimalism to take in everything from the phase patterns of Steve Reich, the atonal chords of Glenn Branca, Throbbing Gristle’s aggressive electronic shimmer, Neubauten’s rhythmic invention, and the gu zheng masters of Chinese classical music. Their pieces can range from highly organized agglomerations of atonal chords that have an almost rock and roll ferociousness, to a completely anarchic attack of weirdly syncopated drum sounds derived from a chance encounter with old furniture or a dysfunctional machine.

Shou Wang, who plays guitar, organ, toys, analogue pedals, drums, and effects, is a founder member of the Chinese new music movement ‘No Beijing’ and is the guitarist/vocalist for Beijing noise band Carsick Cars.

In spite of his extreme youth he is considered by many Chinese musicians at the very heart of the new generation of Chinese avant-garde musicians, in 2006 flying to New York to take part in Glenn Branca’s famous No.13 recording “Hallucination City” for 100 guitarists. In 2005 he formed White No.1, a septet that paid tribute to the early work of Glenn Branca, and White 2J, in which he played keyboards. Finally he and Shen Jing, who had been admirers of each other’s music from afar and who shared the same passion for New York noise and kosmiche rhythms, formed White as an outlet for their more avant garde tendencies.

Shen Jing plays analogue synth, drums, percussion, sampler, vocals, tape manipulation, and effects; she has been deeply immersed in Beijing’s music scene since 1998, participating in the vibrant explosion it has undergone in recent years. Until 2006, she was the drummer in Beijing indie/punk legends Hang On The Box, but since 2003, her work has increasingly demonstrated her own unique form of cosmic industrial noise.

In May 2007 Blixa Bargeld, of Einsturzende Neubaten fame, shipped
White off to Berlin to produce their first CD.

Track Name: Train Song
行么?先是走路然后再坐地铁,对,应该,如果走路的话太长了,所以要坐地铁
看见了一条狗,特别喜欢,它跑掉了
唉,应该是,路边有一个教堂特别的高,然后只能看见它的顶
因为从来没有见过这么高的教堂,而且好像今天早上那个教堂还在敲钟
它在走
应该里面只有两个人,然后一个是我,还有另外一个是一个老人,然后我们都不会说,我们没法去聊天,因为说不同的语言,然后他给我看了很多的东西,然后我也给他看了自己,自己从来没有给别人看过的东西,然后互相都觉得特别奇怪。
窗户外面看到楼的对面有一堆德国人在开party,笑的声音特别大然后在那儿喝酒,说话声音也特别大,让我没法去睡觉。Ahhhh-eehhh-taaaa-eehhh-ahhh。

Track Name: Falling Down
事实是这样的
最先开始我只是听到有什么人在和我说:"你看,这个世界就是这样的,
你不能越过这个临界,如果你越过了,就在也回不来了!"
然后我觉得我死过去了,但实际上没有,下一秒我就像猜火车放perfect day那段似的
从一片黑暗狭小的空间里一下醒过来,喘着粗气,复活了

这种情况出现了几次后便发生了改变,我在也听不到这种声音了
但我必须在某一个时刻倒下,特别缓慢的那种。
我真的不想这样,因为它看上去可能很好笑,或者会另一些人担心
最后我和他们说:"我真的不知道
