Yuwen Peng: Putting a Spin on Sizhukong
AAJ: What are your and Sizhukong's plans in the near future?
YP: We'll try to play more abroad. As bandleader, I have to take care of almost every part of the band business: the music, the compositions, the administration and the marketing. Too much! [Laughs.] If I keep doing a new music production every year, as I've done for the last five years, it will take most of my time and energy, which is actually good for me as a musician, but right now there's still a lot I need to do besides the music. I think this is a time when we should organize what we already have. For example, although we are practicing all the time, I feel the band should make some progress in its performance skills. And on the marketing side, we should make a really good press kit. Whenever we have the chance, we should look better and sound better.
Maybe we need to take a year to digest what we have done and then to think what the next step is. Hopefully, we can bring our music to many new countries.
