ANKR Live Sessions is an electronic music spectacle that takes place in outdoor surroundings. We entered nature to capture the harmonious relationship between humanity and the environment, melding together sound and space to commemorate the extraordinary moment. ANKR also sampled the natural environment from the east coast and collected traditional aboriginal music in first-hand recordings, then brought them back to Taipei for the four music producers to create new music for the Live Session performances.
Starting at the source of the reservoir, we walked on cracked ground down a gentle slope to the bottom of the lakebed.

He develops creative ideas from the intertwining relations between life and the world, using the low vibrations of bass as the key foundation.
