This chapter mines the literature to bring out the richness and heterogeneity of Chinese rock. The first part charts the geography of music as the intersection of situated material space and networked topology. Chinese rock thus assembles disparate elements from the two wests: the capitalist-west and, the western China of the silk roads. The second part addresses the live rock scenes that has mushroomed in cities, some as forces of dissenters, some as state-sanctioned role models, or, as a hybrid form of both.
