We’re able to run your studio successfully in Shenyang? If so I think you can do it in Chengdu, since Chengdu is a bigger city and has much more of a reputation as a city of music and creative culture. Ordinarily for a foreigner I’d say it’s very risky because managing a business as a foreigner in China is a complicated challenge (we have a podcast episode on this subject).
Hopefully you gained some useful experience and insight in running your studio in Shenyang and can bring that to Chengdu! Good luck.
Yep running a business in China can be (usually is I should say) tricky and painful. I am aware about it trust me haha.
But always good to get a reminder ;o)
My question was more about the music scene, as for instance I lived for 3 months in Dali, and before getting there I’ve been told it was an amazing city for musicians. Trust me, I explored from regular places to underground ones…. it is not… at least not anymore… I wouldn’t open a studio there…
I am brand new here but I’ve got the impression that Chengdu is really a good spot for that.
I keep doing my researches and meet people, but just wanted to get the overall impression from people already here.
