Snapline, the fourth band we filmed with while visiting Beijing, China, was the one band that nearly everyone we spoke to told us we had to meet. With nothing but praise for the bands roots in noise, punk and experiential style from the folks we talked to, we were equally excited to meet with them and hear them perform live. We even saw bassist Li Weisi perform the night before at XP Bar for an experimental music night, which we didn't realize until we saw him at our shoot the next day.


Another interesting bit of information was that the lead singer, Chen Xi, works for Microsoft and we were told he was "highly functioning" as our sound man Deng Chenglog described, and because of his full time work schedule we had to plan to film around that. I wasn't quite sure what that meant other than Xi sounded like he had an important job, and I wondered how that highly

functioning description would tie into the  music.  Fortunately, we were able to catch up with them on the Wednesday before we were leaving China and see for ourselves. They performed two songs that evening, this one titled "She."
