Pan Daijing (b. Guiyang China, 1991) is a Berlin-based artist and composer. Her performance based practice explores modes of storytelling across sound, movement, the architectural environment and moving image. Drawing on the capacity of music to exceed the limits of language, her work communicates sonic, physical and psychological depths, seeking a means of connection beyond the human condition. Her compositional method is based on extensive improvisation with analogue synthesizers and the human voice as well as deconstruction of instruments and field recordings. Exploring the sphere of psychoacoustics and opera, she uses both recording techniques and live performance to expand the listening experience and challenge the understanding of music as an art form. Her work is often developed in conversation with architectural space, pressurizing the boundaries between forms to create enveloping, sensory experiences for audiences to enter and inhabit.

Daijing has exhibited internationally, such as Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2021); The 13th Shanghai Biennale, Power Station of Art, Shanghai (2021); Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin (2020); Tate Modern, London (2019); Biennale of Moving Image Geneva (2018). She has also performed at Barbican Centre, London; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin among many others. She’s released two full length albums Jade (2021) and Lack (2017.
