TanBo as Intermedia Musicians
Music/Sound Art is a main element of TanBo's works. Although they often work and perform as a band, TanBo is not a “typical” band that people mostly think of.
Besides pure musical composition, their music performances mix performance art, theatre and film/Video frequently, or the music is part of their other art works. In addition, they like to collaborate with other artists/musicians with their music/sound creation.
For them it’s not so important to be a “musician”, but more significant to have music in every corner of their life.
For Intermedia work
Unknown Ritual (2015-)
Here are the first excerpts of the music for TanBo's intermedia art / film “Unknown Ritual”, in which they invited some performance artists(Li Ning, Zhang Mengqi, He Chengyun, Bi Haiyan, Zhu Linan) to do some site-specific improvised performance with them, in order to cross-over the boundaries between film and performance art.
