Since our first announcement of the online project CORE IN CHINA at the end of January not even a week has past and already more than 20 bands have applied to participate in what we anticipate will be a momentum snapshot of the heavier side of China’s music scene. With applications rolling in from Zhengzhou, Changsha, Macau, Hongkong, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu and Guangzhou a great number of awesome bands have given us a story to tell.
With scheduled release in May 2012, bands can still participate and apply for the compilation project until March. So please if you read this and you are a band: Apply! If you know bands that should apply, tell them! And if you want to help us spread the word, then message us. Right now we are looking at featuring the compilation in four countries (Germany, France, China and the USA) and are still looking for media partners in other languages (Spanish, Italian, Portugese) that are interested in bringing the ‘core world of China closer to their readers & listeners.
The graphic above is a third preliminary design for the cover art of the compilation. The design will be fixed most propably in April.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Comments? Or just rants on why the heck we try to include Nintendocore? Just type it into the comments section!
