Live electronic music from Chinabot - a platform and collective to change the dialogue surrounding Asian music.
> Neo Geodesia is Saphy Vong, a French Cambodian audio visual artist born in a Thai refugee camp after his parents fled the Khmer Rouge, and grew up in the suburbs of Nancy, northeastern France. His unique musical outlook fuses the experimental and DIY ethos that can be found in the local Nancy Hardcore and Grindcore scene that embraced him as a teenager, and the sounds broadcasted from Cambodia into his home through his parents pirated tapes and videos of Khmer pop, karaoke, monk chants, and movies.

> Jaeho Hwang is a London/Seoul-based DJ, producer, and visual artist. As a producer, he recontextualizes traditional Korean instrumentation and brings it into the contemporary club music scene. As a DJ, he has been recognised for forward-thinking mix styles including Techno, Bass, Hard dance, Reggaeton, Post-Club, Experimental with Asian sounds.

> Ayankoko is the solo musical effort of French-Laotian multi-instrumentalist and composer David Somphrachanh Vilayleck; a fusion of jazz, sound design, traditional, noise, ambient, computer music, and classical. He studied at the French conservatories of Perpignan and Strasbourg and has a PhD in jazz guitar, improvised music and composition. Ayankoko is an ever-evolving project which questions the ear about sound perception, its raw nature, the definition of music and the concept of ugly-beauty.
