OAS003 : Baishui / No Intrinsic, No Independent

Cover art by A.L.

OAS003: Baishui / No Intrinsic, No Independent

Born in a small Sichuanese city, Baishui is a composer and self-taught guitarist, pianist and master of many traditional Chinese instruments, whose compositions and performance have ranged across his career from neo-folk and dark-ambient-influenced music to experimental and post-rock sounds—and beyond.

He has recorded more than 10 albums which were critically acclaimed and won him a worldwide interest and prizes.

He has been performing in a lot of different countries and while sometime his music may seem to be the product of very different artists, they reflect Baishui’s multi-faceted approach to the musical expression of his personal journey. 

No Intrinsic, No Independent is a single 23 minutes long track originally recorded in 2011. It shows his more post-rock influences, mixing at times even some prog or jazz touches, before finishing with a typically folk flute reminding his Shichuanese roots.
He plays all the instruments on it.
