The photograph on the cover of “Dong” depicts a musician cleaning with water a traditional stringed instrument called Niutui Qin. Slightly out of focus, the body of the instrument is printed in metallic silver ink, while a bright orange-colored oval dominates the cover, which is also adorned with unfamiliar phonograms.

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 allow 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 transport the reader to a peaceful place deep in southwestern China.

封⾯选⽤的照⽚是⼀位乐者在⽤水冲洗牛腿琴(侗族传统乐器)。主体琴身轻微的失焦,并⽤银⿊⾊叠印出的琴体、主导视觉的橙⾊椭圆块以及⼀些看上去陌生的音标。

这本书与⼀个跨越三年的侗族文化项⽬目密切相关。两位居住在上海的音乐人将来自少数民族的传统歌唱转译为当代俱乐部中令人舞动的未来⾳乐。大开本的设计既是对“唱⽚”的形式进行参考和隐 喻,也让读者花更多的时间在“阅读”那些独特的少数民族的美学细节。书中也附上了了两张同名唱片的试听⼆维码。在聆听的同时,书中的文本与摄影也将读者带入深藏在中国西南的静谧之地。
