This book is a kind of documentation for the three-year long project on Dong culture in which two Shanghai-based musicians transformed traditional Dong folk songs into futurist club dance music. The large format of the book refers to the size, shape and materials of vinyl albums. The content of the book allows readers to dwell a little longer and ponder over the particular aesthetics of the Dong ethnic minority group. Also included are QR codes for the two eponymous albums, “Dong 1” and “Dong 2”. While listening, one can read the texts and look at the photographs in the book, as they aim to transport the reader to a peaceful place deep in southwestern China.
