2018 is the 40th anniversary of China’s economic reform. During these 40 years, Shenzhen has developed from a small fishing village into a thriving metropolis full of promise where countless people have come in hopes of making their dreams come true.
Musicity Shenzhen has chosen seven buildings stretching from Shekou, the location of the original fishing village, northward to OCT-LOFT. These buildings are visible symbols of Shenzhen’s 40-year development and are also representatives of its fast pace.
Nick Luscombe has collaborated with British musicians Simon James and Ash Koosha, as well as Chinese musicians Zen Lu, Shen Piji, and Gao Ying to create new music that captures the essence of the city’s development. Musicity Shenzhen is also cooperating with the Shenzhen Fringe Art Centre to launch a series of online and offline events during the Shenzhen Fringe Festival.
Special thanks to Design Society, iFactory, OCT Art and Design Gallery, OCT-LOFT, and Tencent Seafront Towers for their support.
