Description
The word "gweilo" means "white devil" and is often used by Chinese to refer to westerners. My wife is Chinese and her family uses the term "fangui", meaning foreigner, but I don't think that term is as widely known.

The Chinese music in this piece has been clipped from an untitled track performed by the Hupeh Opera Troupe Orchestra and laid down over glitch-hop beats (thrown together by me).

Lofan Gweilo
It's nearly as strong an epithet as the N word is- the way I
hear it from my Chinese friends.

Really strange little piece. Your levels are too hi- getting
distortion.

Interesting Experiment
The mix is very odd with the distortion. As the piece went
on by the half way point though it started to feel more
cohesive.

needs some spice
the little bell part at the end was a nice contrast to the
boomy rest of the song. would be cool to work it over
more of the song to break it up a bit. man, your artwork
on the last few have been as inspiring as the music itself!
go man, go

Real interesting sounds
on this one. No question it's in the right genre- though
maybe ethnic?

Artistic
I think the composition has a bit too much distortion (on
purpose maybe?), but overall, this is a musical journey. I
like anytying that tries to explore humans, different
cultures etc. This is great music - very different but
great.

Would you have the time to listen to and like my voice and
choice of lyrics, feel free to discuss a collab at any time...
Thanks for a great song.

hyperplastic
funny how your tunes always sound just right on my
headphones, and either yourself or others speak of
level distortion.
i've somehow missed the beatz/collab bit- i'm going
to have to scan back because this is a lot of fun and
has that little extra level to it.
well, you know i'm a sucker for anything unusual-
so, i'll skip to it and put this on my 'pod

Strange mix. Soundtrack for "Arnold Goes to Shanghai" or
"Gimmedat Stun Gun, Gweilo".

House of mirrors
With golden dragons on the corners. I hear the distortion too. But this is really cool; I like your placement and fracturing of the orchestral music. --D

Diggen it
I'm movin to it... I'm assuming that the distortion thing
was on purpose, since you have proven that you have a
good ear. Thanks for traking me along on your travels.
