Born and raised in Guiyang, Southwest China, she has been hiding in Berlin since 2016. Rooted in noise music, her raw approach as a composer and performer takes many forms; primarily performance art, sound, dance and installation, hinging heavily on improvisation and acts of storytelling. Soul exposing utterances and sonic, aesthetic outbursts as a means of direct communication are the main tendons of her practice; vehicles of power and vulnerability are interwoven in her work sensorially rather than as statements.
Pan Daijing is a self-taught, self-proclaimed outsider who makes music, art, and tells stories.
“Across spheres of contemporary art, experimental music, noise and techno, Pan’s twisting trajectory as an artist is rousing to witness; Lack惊蛰 serves as yet another reminder of her thrill.“ THE QUIETUS
'Get’s your heart racing and palms sweating; it’s enthralling and addictive yet disconcerting and uncomfortable. Pan has reasserted her penchant for the uncomfortable, in a sonic iteration of the discomfort of David Lynch’s Eraserhead' — THE WIRE
She has released an acclaimed album debut, Lack, on PAN, and her ongoing projects comprise of Fist Piece, a complex choreography of film, sound and performance premiered in Kraftwerk at Berlin Atonal, In Service Of A Song, a performative installation shown in succession at Haus der Kulturen der Welt and at Galleria Isabella Bortolozzi, and The Speaker, a collaborative aural theatre piece premiered at St. Elisabeth’s Church in Berlin.
'Daijing presents a dream, the plot of which, after waking, you can't quite piece together. Its walls of sound become etched onto your mind's surface. It's a vision that lingers in your psyche' - RESIDENT ADVISOR
Cited as one of the most exciting figures in the current avant-garde, she has showcased her work and performed in museums, theatres, churches and underground clubs as well as festivals such as CTM, Sonar, Unsound and the London Contemporary Music Festival. She is currently constructing a multidisciplinary new opera, a collaboration with designer Ximon Lee, as well as her next LP.
