Walk along the Berlin Citadel Gallery with John Cage's notes: The Feuerle Collection

In particular, the city of Berlin retains many icy cement bunkers that have historically carried a military mission and a gloomy historical color. With the support of the local government, open art collectors purchased it and turned it into a private gallery. Through the cooperation between the public and private sectors, the ruined historical buildings have become a unique art exhibition platform, and at the same time, they have injected cultural power into the society to achieve a win-win situation. The Feuerle Collection, which was converted from the Nazi bunker during the Second World War, is not only a subversion of the traditional private gallery, but also an artistic sacred place that is isolated from the world and will fall into the trap.

The bunker for military purposes is mostly a cumbersome and simple building with a thick wall. However, unlike the refuge that provides shelter from enemy air raids and consists of many small compartments, The Feuerle Collection was formerly a space for large telecommunications equipment during wartime; it is about three meters high and has a large single-area area. The columns stand in rows. Therefore, it is only for storage, the atmosphere is more lonely, and the air is filled with infinite coldness.

We all listen to electronic music: Taiwan Independent Orchestra "Unfamiliar Friends Party"

"I grew up listening to the "unfamiliar friends party"". This sentence is not a joke for many people. This year’s 10th anniversary of the Taiwan Independence Orchestra’s “Unfamiliar Friends Party” (hereinafter referred to as “Unfamiliar”), consisted of Xiao Ke, Xiao Ren and lilybeer who were members of the VARO Orchestra. It consists of the guitarist of "Digihai" and "Emily The Band" and Zheng Ping, who is also a student of Xiaoke High School. The witty group name comes from a group of four people who went to a party that "everyone has to invite a stranger" to go to the party because they feel that the concept of the event is interesting. Although the process of deciding the name of the orchestra has been around, these four people have become a quarter of each other's lives. Only four people gathered together and a party was complete. In 2007, Daft Punk's French-style electric dance music swept the world, everyone was immersed in the album "Alive 2007", unfamiliar and hope to create a spread of joy, listening to people can not help but on the dance floor Dancing music. The original intention of the play group is always simple. After experiencing the exploration and experiment in the early stage of the group, it is a beautiful misunderstanding to develop an unfamiliar style in the future. "At first I wanted to say if I could make music as handsome as Chemical Brothers, Digihai or Sharoman Snake, but I found that we couldn't do it. It was because they failed to learn from them and developed their own style." lilybeer joked . In the early period, the average person's impression of the dance music was unfamiliar. There was no fixed pattern and type, and the songs were arranged in a sequence, and the notes flowed with the feeling. In 2008, the single "whistle boy" included in the DA PARTY compilation was the standard appearance of the unfamiliar songs at that time. Later, adding vocal to the electronic sound not only injected the concept of the paragraph into the song, but also successfully caused the listener to resonate and draw the distance between the orchestra and the audience. The four people who have been immersed in different music and training have also walked through the period of mutual understanding and running-in, and still maintain dialogue and discussion about music creation. The ten-year situation has not gone, but it has changed and matured, and it has grown steadily in the dialogue between the members. Even if the four people are sitting together, they still scream at each other like a big child. Since the release of EP "we are so wise" in 2009, and the 2010 mini album "Headstrong", the members have gone abroad for further study; the new album "Golden Pig" released in March this year PIGNITY has been brewing for a long time, and it is more able to see the determination to celebrate the new music. Every youthful and daring soul wants to catch all the ideals at once, and it is inevitable to get tired. Practiced on the music level, in the past performances, unfamiliar songs always have Zheng Ping’s guitar performance. Other members will change three or four sounds in one song time, plus computer output loop, I’m afraid to miss anything. The perception and message delivered to the listener. To put it bluntly, every song is filled and full. For the creator, the work is the clearest mirror. The new album "PIGNITY" reflects the four people's thinking transformation and psychological level improvement. Xiao Ke uses the "return to the truth" four words to accurately summarize . Ten years later, they began to understand how to breathe and learn to give up; slow down their own pace and give more space to each other. "First remove the guitar sound first." Zheng Ping, who is called music by everyone, explained the biggest breakthrough of the new album: "We re-examine the structure of songs that used to be too full, and the most important thing is to simplify. Rock color, easy to limit style, and make the melody too complicated for the guitar; initially hope to make the vocal of the song with paragraphs also minimized, so that the paragraph can be established without the use of lyrics." They stressed, "return to the purest electronic sound "." When it comes to the difference between the new work and the previous one, "If a song has only one tone or melody line, it is very good. Why do you want to add a bunch of things? We further think about how each other can be matched and let everyone have a rest during the performance. Time.” Xiao Ren also shared his feelings. “It’s also related to age. We used to be very rushing. We like to put a lot of melody together. Every song is full, just like a kaleidoscope. But the new album is simplistic. The arrangement is more restrained and more white, so that the listener can feel it.” Continued the playful name of the first two works, taken from the homophonic “PIGNITY”, the most memorable A smile, but why is the title of "pig"? This is due to the small game between the members. After the first song on the album was completed, it was named after "White Pig". The pigs of different characters and status were used as the "milk name" of each song, so the album name continued this fun. After entering the formal name discussion, it took a lot of effort from the members; from Chinese and English to transliteration, I finally decided to play the English word "dignity", which was called "pignity", and then extended to mean the meaning of Chinese. The new album sets the perfect interpretation: "Golden Pig (Twig) Jade Leaf". A litter of pigs, each with its own characteristics. The diversity of the face includes the creation of the unconventional style of the transformation of the charming pigs and the "lucky pigs", as well as the rare slow songs (the jin pigs), the "black pigs" and the "electric pigs" are accentuating the electronic color. Presentation. There was a time when the bottleneck was created, and the four men experimented with a series of creative changes. "It was a hard day." Now they talk about every new song, and they are full of satisfaction and pragmatism. Four people can play together for ten years. Is there any secret? Lilybeer said: "Our mode of getting along has not changed in the past ten years, but it has become more inclusive." The members have been familiar with each other as family members, and they have no desire to write songs with ease and happiness. "This orchestra always reminds me who it is. After a hard day in the workplace and life, after a hard day, you can relax and regain your appearance when you practice the group." The sensibility of Xiao Ren, the Tao It is not familiar with the meaning of her life. Thus, a casual "unfamiliar friend party" ten years ago became synonymous with these four people. Although they are always ashamed and awkward when they talk, they can use the "unfamiliar" electronic dance music made in the bedroom house to call your dynamic genes, and let the foot step down immediately become a portable dance floor! Unfamiliar also set the ultimate goal: to send a new album "PIGNITY" for Taihao, let her fall in love with Xiao Ke with music (laugh)!

Open the white door and glimpse the aftertaste of the old house: Tainan daily scenery, floating coffee

"There is a carambola sauce in the refrigerator, you can drink it first." The guest who walked into the floating coffee from the outside with the strong sun, the first thing I heard was not the welcome, but the friendly greeting of the owner, Gong Gongru. Her tone, firm and calm, defines the first impression of the coffee shop space that is located in the central and western district of Tainan and the old house.

Five years ago, in order to find a storefront, this old house that I had seen but did not rent, five years later, Gong Gong was brought back to the original point. She said: "The house seems to be looking for it yourself." It has become the intersection of the past and future of the floating coffee. The layout of the old house in the old house can still be seen, but the gap between the doors is rare. The soft natural light makes the whole floating coffee become an open space without pressure. The terrazzo floor, fine stone columns, walls, steps and rooms in the house are all completely preserved.

When it comes to coffee, Gong Gong does not belong to any genre. Compared with expensive tools or sophisticated technology, what she cares most is to sincerely cook a cup of good coffee for the guests. After years of experience, she will bake beans herself, and also choose high-quality coffee beans from Hualien and all over the place; in the store, she can always see her standing behind the bar and a cup of patience for the guests to brew coffee. With the new look of the floating coffee, the business content has also matured and changed. In addition to the quality requirements for coffee and tea, Gong Gong will also put more effort into the operation of the store to explore more possibilities to enhance the style of life.

After experiencing the chaos of store relocation, Gong Gong deeply realized that operating a coffee shop is not only a one-way service, but the treatment provided by the guests is more. Especially when she was cleaning up a store, she won the cheers and care of many guests. The ordinary daily conversations such as the tiny candlelight in the darkness made Gong Gong feel warm in time. This kind of communication will return the coffee shop to the name of "Floating" of the store name. This is the name of the script that Gong Gong wrote many years ago. It refers to the state of life and the coffee shop where she lives in the name of floating. I hope to do it: to be the rest stop in the middle of each person's journey, and to go longer after the break. Floating coffee, is expected to become a rest stop in the middle of each person's journey, and can go longer after the break.
