ANKR Live Sessions Episode 6 : B E N N / Turoboan


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.

B E N N is a DJ and music producer. His style specializes in creating electronic drum sounds with tightened percussion rhythms. On the finale episode, the session took place at “Turoboan”, back in the age of voyages in the seventeenth century, the name was given by western sailors, which meant “a shiny place” in Spanish. At that time, there were records of alluvial gold being discovered at the mouth of the Liwu River.
