The Shanghai Restoration Project (SRP) is the Barcelona based electronic duo of Dave Liang and Sun Yunfan. Initially inspired by the 1930s Shanghai jazz scene, SRP’s genre-bending, border-traversing, retro-futuristic soundscape often uses poetic melodies to draw audiences into imaginary settings where unexpected adventures unfold with a dissonant and polyrhythmic palette. SRP started out as a solo project of Dave Liang and the band's early works such as Instrumentals: Day - Night and Zodiac stood out for their organic synthesis of Chinese instrumentation, hip-hop, and electronica. In 2011 Liang met multidisciplinary artist Sun Yunfan and the two soon started collaborating - first on music videos and live visuals and later on songwriting and production, beginning with 2015’s playful fusion album Life Elsewhere featuring longtime collaborator vocalist Zhang Le. Starting in 2017, the duo's releases Flashbacks in a Crystal Ball , R.U.R. and singles Dubalonia Radio International and A148 marked a shift toward introspection: how to dream a different future and find balance in a changing world.Brave New World Symphony, the group's latest release, was crafted entirely under quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic. Stuck indoors, the group crafted a collection of songs reacting to the individual and societal changes they observed during this unsettling time.
