Yin-Trend Music Night in Guangzhou brought together popular performers and avant-garde art and technology to wow a live and online audience. Chen Nan reports.

The Yin-Trend Music Night in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province, offered the audience more than just music as there were also interactive projections, high-tech robots and artworks by avant-garde artists presented on the same stage with some of the country's biggest pop stars.

During the event on Jan 13, Chinese pop singer-songwriter Li Yuchun performed her latest hits along with a video created by Iranian artist Ali Momeni.

And a robot band, called Compressorhead, which plays on real electronic instruments made by Berlin-based artist Frank Barnes and collaborators Markus Kolb and Stock Plum, performed alongside Chinese pop singer-songwriter Hua Chenyu.

Portuguese twin brothers Oskar & Gaspar used a dress worn by Hong Kong singer-actress Karen Mok as the canvas for their projections, transforming the dress into moving images while Mok was singing.

German digital artist and designer Tobias Gremmler captured the movements of Chinese singer-songwriter Dou Jingtong, or Leah Dou, while she was performing her song Whistler's Riddle and transformed her movements into visualized images through projection.

Yin-Trend Music Night, launched by the Music Center of Tencent Video, a Chinese video streaming website owned by the country's internet giant Tencent, presented about 10 collaborations that combined music, dance, artworks and technology.
