Gao Jiafeng 高嘉丰
2 emails from Gao Jiafeng:
Thanks for the invite. Sounds cool I'd love to join.
(and sorry for the delay, I've been trying to put together my life in Berlin)
Maybe because I miss everything about China and I couldn't wait to go back from this Europe tour, I don't see there's an urge inside of me to forget about it. But of course we can keep the conversation in English.
OK now back to the topic. I have 3.5 facts to show you, not all of them are relevant to the topic.
1. I don't have a lot of tracks of my speech-involved performances, they are mostly videotaped - check this recent one out
2. recently I'm obsessed with Asian pop music. or say I have been a huge fan for long but just realized lately.
3. The name of this label is interesting. Makes me think of counting numbers/letters. I've been doing sheep-counting in different situations: on a personal podcast, or with free jazz legend. This may be a possible direction to develop.
3.5 I just made a remix track using the Tetris theme, it's 150bpm. I already sent a snapshot to you on wechat.
my short bio:
I am Gao Jiafeng a.k.a Feng, organize (events), publish (music) and make both experimental and commercial music. At this moment (that I'm writing you these words) I've just moved out of New York. And now I'm in the middle of my Europe tour, for the rest of which I am really not sure if I will have enough energy/dedication to make it.
tell me what you think

It's been wonderful. Stomach treated OK, efficiency OK, wallet OK. Lots of pretty girls out there in this city, tho for most of the time I stay at home for days. I have two bands here, first is my pop duo with Dong Bingqing called "MP3 Darling Darling" , another is a punk rock band that we just started and only rehearsed once, no name yet. Audience are great! (both on the internet and live) I like playing both noise shows and very commercial ones, and so glad to make people dance in both situations. In China I feel there's so much more audience on the internet, whom I can never meet in my previous music circle. Europe tour early this year was more like a trip to me. And you just made me want to visit Europe again...Great! Hope this album works out smoothly. Can't wait.
I forget what I wrote for bio, but that probably work. You can also add the fact that I'm trying to write songs in Japanese and hopefully Korean:)

3，这个厂牌的名字（End of Alphabet）有点意思。让我想起来数数字或者数字母。我在不同情境中数过绵羊：在一个私人的播客节目里，或者是跟爵士传奇人物同台。这大概能是个值得发展的方向。
太棒了。胃口不错。效率不错。钱包不错。这个城市有很多漂亮女孩，虽然多数时间我都连续几天待在家里。我在这有两个乐队，一个是我和董冰清的流行二重奏，叫做“MP3 Darling Darling”，另一个是我刚搞起来的朋克乐队，只排练过一次，还没有起名字。观众很牛逼。我喜欢演噪音演出也喜欢商业的（包括网络上和现场），而且非常开心能在两种情况下都让观众跳舞。在中国我觉得网络上有那么多观众，我在以前的音乐圈子里根本不可能遇到。今年的欧洲巡演对我来说更像是一次旅行。你现在搞得我又想去欧洲了……牛逼！希望这个合辑顺利出来。等不及了。
