The Opposite House, Beijing Vol. 3 CD

May 17, 2011

Following the well-received Oppositehouse Vol 1 and Vol 2, The Opposite House, Beijing will release Oppositehouse Vol 3, a third CD of 10 eclectic tracks by some of China’s most exciting and talented musicians. This third limited edition album, like the first two, has been specially created for guests to enjoy in-house or to take away as a gift and is not for sale.

The 8 artists featured in this album have very diverse musical backgrounds; from Hanggai, who pioneered China’s folk rock scene, mixing rock guitars with throat singing to Zhou Yunpeng, China’s most popular independent folk singers as well as a campaigner for visually impaired children to Shanren, aiming to promote and preserve the heritage of their diverse minority groups. This third album provides an insightful perspective into how today’s musicians are drawing upon the sounds and moods of their ancestors, combining these with modern twists.

The “Khurden” oil painting on the album cover art is by Batzorig Dugarsuren, an Ulaanbaatar based up-and-coming artist. He conveys the idea of reincarnation in an eternal continuum, embedded in the rings of concentric abstraction. Batzorig is represented by the Red Gate Gallery, Beijing and his work is held in the permanent collection of the Mongolian Museum of Modern Art.

“Every Oppositehouse album has a different personality; the third one is a little earthier, but still showcases how new urban folk music is being developed by talented Chinese musicians. We appreciate the contribution of the artists and Universal for putting together these authentic and expressive tracks.” says Anthony Ross, General Manager of The Opposite House.
