Shao is the first Chinese artist to be signed to the legendary Berlin techno imprint Tresor, and is one of China’s leading figures in the world of electronic music and audio visual performance. Highly sought-after as a composer and sound designer, he was invited by the Goethe Institute to re-compose the soundtrack for the classic German silent film Metropolis. Shao also has an ongoing collaboration with leading Chinese directors Meng Jinghui and Cheng Ran. At Recombinant Festival 2019, Shao and visualist Wang Meng presented, for the first time, his colossal and discombobulated sound to the city of San Francisco.
