For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.
The Sound of Changchun is the brainchild of Alessandro "Alex" Antonicelli when he bellowed a call for local talents to come together for a project. His call was enthusiastically answered by a handful of local college teachers-cum-amateur musicians and had their first eyeball on October, 2009. This call was the simple action that dug deep the foundation in which The Sound of Changchun was built on and continues to grow. The Sound of Changchun is a collective effort of individuals and bands. Since its inception, the project has attracted countless talents from both the international and local music scenes. The French duo, Jean-Guy Poirier and Orianne Witkowski, who headlined the first ever Sound of Changchun, were lauded by the local community for their stylish repertoire. The local industrial metal band, Samans bridged a gap between the foreign and local musicians.
As an original subset of the local social network, ChangchunFriends, The Sound of Changchun has access to local and expatriate talents, and venues. Events ranging from homely coffee shops to wide, open parks have been the stages for the participants of the projects. Musical varieties from classical to heavy metal resounded the presence of The Sound of Changchun.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
