Hong’en Guan, Doufuchi Hutong, Beijing
INVITED MUSICIAN/ 李增輝 Li Zenghui
Hong’en Guan, used to be a Taoist temple built by a eunuch in Qing Dynasty. It was rent to the public after the foundation of the country, not only to some ordinary people as residency, but also as a food market and even a pool bar. Zajia, found by Rong Guangrong and his wife in early 2010s, was once an active stage for all kinds of experimental and avant-garde music and theares. The Hutong Improvisation was held in front of the food market and Zajia bar just one year before Zajia was closed, with passers-by and Hutong residents as our “audience”. One thing must mention was that Li Zenghui, our invited musician, got drunk before the performance and was late for it. He joined us in the middle so naturally and suddenly that people thought he was just an audience who got excited.

It was our earliest atteptation in environment improvisation. We just use garbaged we gathered at the beach and made a recording. (Don’t misunderstand, it’s nothing about environment or ocean protection!)
