SoRaspy: What Do Underground Music “Studios” Look Like in China?
Inner Spaces is an exhibition by freelance photographer, Benoit Florencon that exposes what lies beneath the streets of Shanghai; from bustling pedestrian streets and polluted spaces comes the pure form of creativity in music by the city’s underground music producers and MCs. Presented as a photo documentary and told through added quotes, the exhibition works to show these artist in their own spaces, and tells their tale of the process and struggle they endure in order to shape what is the musical landscape of the city today. adding to the effect of intimacy, Benoit captures each producer and MC within their own studio — a scene less known by their audience and more personal to the artist — and interviews them for that chosen quote to represent their personality. A glimpse into their own environment, Inner Spaces lifts the heavy veil to show in true form what Shanghai has to offer in music.
