Follow the sound engineer's footsteps and hear the world's appearance: "Movie Ears: Recording Sounds/Sound Records"

All these sounds may be extremely everyday, and there are stories of their own in the narrative of high and low audio. But some of the sounds are very far away, like the distance that can't be reached. Co-sponsored by the TIDF Taiwan International Documentary Film Festival and the Cube Project Space, the exhibition by the French sound artist Yannick Dauby, "The Film Ear: Recording Sound/Sound Record", with field recording as the endpoint, connecting sensory experience, ecological environment Interview records and sound art.

Hearing is a sensory experience that cannot escape. Without other perceptions, we can consciously choose whether to accept it. The fluctuation of sound will reach the eardrum with the medium such as air. Like sleeping, the sound of mosquitoes flying quickly and fluttering wings is like a problem without solution. In David Toop's "Lost Shadows: in Defence of the Soul," mosquitoes were not absent from the soundtrack's visit to the Samantha ritual of the Yanomami people in the Amazon. From the sound engineer's center, relying on the sound of the distance and source of sound, depicting the deep forest appearance he visited, but also adding a little mystery to the magical sound quality of the wizard. At the same time as the sound leads the journey, the recorder's written records exude a subtle outline of the way they move, the warnings and intentions of the Yanomami people to outsiders, the conduct of the wizard's Saman ritual, and the face of the sound engineer being bitten by a large number of mosquitoes. .

The "Dadong Islands" of Iwata River and Yan Yuying's Iwata are much more tame than the life of the Amazon. The owls in the woods are called regularly, and the bats are weak and sharp but there are heavy waves in the typhoon season. There are also unsatisfactory rains in the sound recordings. Local farmers who grow sugar cane will listen carefully to the sound of rain hitting the roof, because the rainfall is closely related to the harvest of sugar cane.

The boundary of the performance without rehearsal: an impromptu dialogue, the curator of Chaos, Chen Wukang

Images Courtesy of 骉舞剧场. There may be some ancient legend, everything begins with interactive temptations without dialogue, and today we call such experiments improvisation. Impromptu as a producer's production method, a free dialogue can be created and a text with no scope can be created. In the fall of 2016, the dance studio launched a series of performances, "Chaotic Body", which was jointly planned by Chen Wukang, the artistic director of the dance theater, and Li Shiyang, the musician. The creators were invited to create performances in the rehearsal field with body and sound. Without rehearsal and rehearsal, the performers attempted to create a creative field with a blurred purpose and unknown direction in the performance, which made the performers inspire each other, and only depended on it. Perhaps we can say that this series of performance experiments is a kind of friendship, the marriage notice of Taiwanese dance performances in the early 21st century. [Chaotic body sound] The first season of the first season, Chen Wukang XPorta Chiusa. [Chaotic body sound] The first season of the first season, Chen Wukang XPorta Chiusa. How should the audience expect an impromptu performance? How to get a spark from the planner's matching relationship? For the performers, how can they develop a considerable dialogue content and method from an initial respectful friendship? Improvisation becomes a performance, and there must be defects in the overall structure. However, the freedom to be cared for and the unknown to be expected are expected in the performance experiment. The dancers and the performers talk to each other in different languages, and we don't need to expect the dancer to make a sound in any way or the player's identity translocation. Rather, in the impromptu performance, the performers have drawn up the range of media they can use, understand the possibilities and mechanisms of exchange, and continue to be the production that will come in the future.

In the series of "Chaotic Body", which was jointly planned by dancer Chen Wukang and pianist Li Shiyang, the performer was enlarged to the audience in an impromptu performance form, and the initial performance was seen. The performance is such a general beginning, the exhibition is on the stage, and the performers become their own. But I don't always have only the self. There are many deep memories and casual conversations and exchanges. It is like a daily routine. This time Chen Wukang talked with us about improvisation and the process of chaos in improvisation.

[Chaotic body sound] The fifth quarter of the second season, Ye Wangzhou X non-confidential space (Xie Mingzhen + Zheng Gejun). . What kind of opportunity is for you and musician Li Shiyang to start planning this series of performances together? I first went to New York in 2014. During the period, I saw many impromptu performances. There are various forms, most of which are music. About 10-15 minutes before the performance, the audience can enter. The performers have big names and new ones. Impromptu performance. The performers do not rehearse before the performance, but not because they are irresponsible, but they also envy that they can start performing without preparation. The first game I watched was the performance of Philip Glass and a poet. One person read poetry and one played the piano. After the bombing, he got up and walked outside, walked through the crowd and walked out the door. We thought that someone outside would follow the next performance, but he took his things to take the subway. In fact, such a legendary composer is so everyday. Later, before leaving New York, I was invited by a friend and played with them there. This kind of collision or contact through improvisation is very common in this city, it is happening everywhere, it is very chaotic - just like a word, "multidisciplinary". As a dancer, I hope to be able to make an acceleration, let everyone collide a little more, don't think too much. So after I came back, I discussed with Li Shiyang, starting from the fall of 2016, the first season of "Chaotic Body". [Chaotic body sound]...

INSPIRATION|Let's sew a small book, artist Szuyu Liu Liu Sizhen

The little book is covered layer by layer, like a Russian doll, but it is not like a complicated body. It consists of delicate parts and small parts. There is a picture hidden between the pages of the book. The text is written with secrets. Each element cannot be easily separated in this "book". They are all part of the story. For the creation of artist Szuyu Liu Liu Sizhen, the book is no longer just a carrier of message transmission; the book should be a place, place. There are a lot of space and details inside, in the process of reading and flipping, it seems to move in the space. "Sneaked out the backdoor II", 2015.

Literature uses words as a clue to develop space; picture books and photo collections use images to create the viewer's cognitive field; binding design from paper material to typographic design gives the book a different view. Perspective. The greedy eyes of reading are based on the specific nature of various books. The hands that are held up feel the texture of the pages. The senses of vision, touch and even the smell of the pages of the book, and the perception and the boundary of consciousness, we use the senses. With a mood, read a book.

The pen is swaying to one's own world: Calligraf2ity, Japanese book artist Wanmei

Mami, dressed in a kimono, stepped on a long and long cloud roll on the ground, first in the air, and then took a big brush from the side and dipped it in a bowl. Among the inks. When the pen was lifted, the ink splattered on the paper, and she bent down as if she was being led by writing, letting the lines flow, rotate, and dry—the whole process of writing, like a ritual. Photography/ Chien. Photography/ Chien. The history and heritage of Japanese book art should be discussed from the spread of calligraphy from China to Japan. As time passed, calligraphy gradually merged with its own cultural spirit and value in Japan, and it was expressed in tea ceremony, flower path and utensils, and the characters of cursive characters became the source of hiragana. Therefore, in addition to using Chinese characters as writing characters, Japanese calligraphy also uses hiragana in a large amount, which makes the book works have strong fluidity and freedom, and the use of words and blank space derives its own aesthetics. On the other hand, influenced by the thick and distorted lines and text structure of the script and the Lishu, it also develops a strange character shape and structure, pursuing a ugly and interesting style. Photography/ Chien. Photography/ Chien. Photography/ Chien. Photography/ Chien. Photography/ Chien. In the opening of the 2017 penni's solo exhibition Calligraf2ity, Japanese bookkeeper Wanmei performed a writing performance with grass. Write the words "and respect the silence". Combining the "Calligraphy" book and the "Graffiti" graffiti, Wanmei explores the connection and balance between the two - the former as the long-term cultivation of language visual art, the latter is a part of hip-hop culture; the work is full of strength and cozy atmosphere, writing The process is calm, not ill. In this exhibition, she exhibited the "Female" series, "Black" series and some traditional scroll works. Photography/ Chien. Photography/ Chien. The high-profile exhibition is the "female" series. This series of works originally began with the purposeless writing of lines, but then Wanmei found that the word "female" consisted of only three simple lines, but there were many possibilities for change due to the characteristics of stroke and font, and then developed into a complete series. . "First, I will pick four colors first, then use one of them for the surface of the medium. Then, use the remaining three colors to write the word "female". She adds different colors to create texture and color changes in the writing, so that Although the "female" series works with a single character as an element, it has a strong dynamic and visual effect. The "Black" series is written in black ink on many black objects, and the black objects are displayed in various shapes on the white wall, creating a strong visual interest.

In addition to the writing of Chinese characters, there are also many different language systems in the works of Wanmei. The element of writing. "When I write down English and numbers, I feel that it seems to be a higher freedom in the traditional book." For her, that is an unconstrained unconstrained tradition and writing norms; Art and hip-hop culture are strongly attracted. In Wanmei's works, "writing" has a little more external force, which has become a boost to the tradition of writing books, blurring the barriers of calligraphy and the outside world. This time we used the exhibition to talk to her about the book and the idea of ​​creation. Photography/ Chien....

Walking into the old treasure chest, the nostalgic mystery in the city: Bangkok J. No 14 B&B

When most countries in Southeast Asia became colonies in the 20th century, Siam changed its name to Thailand with the meaning of free territory; when the tropical country became a big tourist and tourism country, the secret between the ancient jungles was preserved and became a secret hidden in the familiar corner. Bangkok is always a city with a strong atmosphere, with dampness and heat, mixed with various sounds and civilizations, and preserves a distinct attitude. It has become a distribution center, gathering market flow and curiosity; there have been video workers who have said that the film film lost in Taiwan in the early days can be found in the second-hand market in Bangkok. Away from the madness of Bangkok's impression, J. No. 14 is located in the Khlong San residential area, close to the river and BTS Air MRT, not a noisy area, but also very convenient. The building itself was originally a warehouse, and the owner of the interior design of the owner has been transformed into a secret city. The owner has many cats and dogs, and he is a welcoming task. It is said that sometimes the cat will wait at the door; warm and warm greetings, like traveling in a grandparent's house; in the details and pace, the owner Love and satisfaction for life. The exterior maintains the original appearance of the warehouse. The red and black brick walls, the old furniture, and the stacked furnishings are actually an old mansion; the slightly rough building skeleton is intertwined with lush greenery; Reflecting objects collected from various corners and mixing with each other: old suitcases, antique cabinets, pianos, musical scores, various yellowed illustrations, butterfly specimens on the wall, brown wine bottles, heavy hardcover books... in space The complementary poetry is designed to create a fascinating context for the entire building. Planting densely as if the building was later built out, a large number of ferns hanging down, feathery leaves staggered with daylight gaps, twisted postures seem to have their own lives - it is not like Botanical gardens, and like a plant orphanage, all kinds of unacceptable, gloomy, and too free planting life are accepted here. They may not necessarily have a amiable and neat appearance, and they are free to develop horizontally and vertically. There are always some unknown secrets in the fascinating city, like a scent of temptation. Taking the footsteps of the world's mobility, the old mansion became the residence of the traveller, and airbnb connected in the distance to learn about the possibility of this place.

A hot spot for co-working spaces and professional studios: Co-creation Space, HUBBA TO, Thailand

In the 19th century American industrial cities, commercial offices first appeared, and new information dissemination methods, building materials, technology, and advances in air-conditioning equipment became the driving force of commercial offices. A large group of people work together in one space, strengthen the interaction between workers, and increase the efficiency of work. With the replacement and change of the industry, at the beginning of the 21st century, the space design of the office increases the need for more free space and easy components, such as the sofa entering the office, the table being simplified into a plane where the notebook can be freely placed, Green planting points and so on. For the new imagination of the office, it gradually became the predecessor of the common work space. Then the common work space becomes a comprehensive type of space used by independent workers, creative work teams, artists, etc., which in turn promotes mutual communication and connection between different industries. Thailand's joint work space Hubba Thailand operates the second common working space, HUBBA TO, in cooperation with Sansiri, a large local shopping mall, when the first common space is operational. But Hubba to is more than the imagination of the common workspace, "co-creation space", trying to include more different types of work in the space, separated by many professional studios, including pottery, Wood studios, open kitchens, photography darkrooms, screening spaces, tailoring studios, and maker spaces. This is the reason why the common workspace is called "Hubba". They hope to expand the original link and strengthen the concept of space as a hub. Hubba Thailand commissioned Supermachine Studio designer Yupade Suvisith and Pitupong Chaowakul to plan for the integration of various types of studios and office spaces. The space design of HUBBA TO extends the concept of Hubba Thailand, the first common workspace, to visualize the imagination and concept of space. They emphasized the maintenance and engineering of space (M&E) and enhanced their vision to depict the main visual lines of space in a green, loose line. Strong line vision, but also echoes the information and flow channels of various fields of human society, as a base for gathering, shuttle, and connection to various purposes. Soon after the completion of 2016, HUBBA TO has become the largest working space in Southeast Asia, greatly expanding the exchanges and mutual understanding between different professional fields, and promoting more creative practices that are working hard.

Collage Narrative of Architecture: Athens Petralona House

Modernist architecture of the twentieth century (reviewing the modernist confession of the 20th century architect EILEEN GRAY & L4 HOUSE by the architect Argentine architect Luciano Kruk), which greatly influences the style of today's architecture, geometric lines, minimalist architecture The styling became a trend, with high-rise buildings and buildings. The Greek architectural team Point Supreme Architects rebuilt a low-rise old house in Athens with a collage approach, becoming a three-story mixed-race building, Petrolona House. The "collage" technique came from the beginning of the last century by the cubist painters Pablo Picasso and George Braque, the two pioneers who blended various media on the plane of the painting. Use, to explore how the changes in the media show each other's impact and characteristics, affecting the later surreal, Dada and Pop Art. During and after World War I, the Dadaism boom spread in Europe; under the spirit of accidentality and emptiness, Dadaists practiced the collage techniques while disintegrating the order of the old world, in addition to expressing anti-war trends. The protest was dissatisfied with the bourgeois value that prevailed at the time. However, collage is often not so pleasing in architectural design, because it is often simplified as a combination of visual color blocks; "Meeting in a plane that is unfamiliar to both sides," German artist Max Ernst once described. Point Supreme Architects's duo architects Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou believe that if you don't just use visual color blocks to understand architecture, but instead use a variety of different spatial experiences as a priority for architectural design, you can create unique Spatial narrative. We hope that the work is not only related to collages and colors, it is too easy to misunderstand. Our priority is to use collage to create different sensory experiences – collages are just the way to achieve their goals. So the story of space is far more necessary than collage. Originally a traditional one-story residential building in Athens, Petralona House blends the imagination of the architects and their architectural experience and architectural space in the Netherlands and London. The first floor partially retains the look of the home, using a large amount of glass to connect the natural space of the courtyard; the second floor uses a retro canopy, windows and balconies to connect traditional Greek life; the top floor is an extended white box – even reminiscent of The collage style is very different from the work of modernist master Kirby. "In fact, it blends elements of many different homes that create a new sense of story in the space." The design team explained the coherent approach from nature to life, humanity, and abstraction from a building. Inside the building, a large number of remanufactured or second-hand items are used to talk to the building, and some of the materials are provided by local residents. They are creating unique buildings in nature, interpersonal communication, and ideals. It is also what the construction team believes: there is a focus in various contradictory, relative, and heterogeneous contexts that can cover various differences. .

One dollar to buy an old bank: Chicago Stone Island Art Bank

The bank Stony Island Trust & Savings Bank, designed by architect William Gibbons Uffendell in 1923, was completed at Stony Island Avenue in Chicago, which was once the center of operations in the Chicago area. At that time, Fitzgerald wrote in the Great Gatsby in the American Jazz era, the love pursuit of the mysterious rich and the shadow of the flashy world, depicting the bustling scenery of northern life. On the other hand, Faulkner wrote the story of the South, focusing on the structure of life in the past, facing the impact of the pattern of life brought about by industrialization and racism. With the division of labor resources, the shift of economic focus, and high-tech production technology, this bank has also disappeared from the tremendous impact of changes in the world; the branches of the Eight Diagrams era were closed, but because the building structure is still sound, it is idle and idle. The 21st century. In 2012, Theaster Gates, an artist and founder of the Rebuild Foundation, bought the bank building for the US dollar for one dollar and began to lead the Rebuild Foundation team to reorganize the operation; it took three years and finally arrived in October 2015. The name of Stony Island Arts Bank reopened during the Chicago Architecture Biennale. Theaster Gates, a Chicago-based "social practice" artist, practices art creation among the public through spatial development, objects, performances, and reviews. Therefore, for him, Shidao Art Bank is not only an "art space" that is re-born as an abandoned space. He regards itself as a practical creation. Even though Theaster Gates purchased the space itself at a very low price, the reorganization and opening of the Shidao Art Bank faced huge operating costs, such as exhibition planning and event design execution. He will take the marble material from the bank building itself, print his signature and motto "In ART We Trust", and make a $5,000, debt-like art sales fundraising; it acts like a bank-issued bond. Like. And in what way should a non-profit art center respond to economic debt? Shidao Art Bank offers artists exhibitions and spaces in the village. On the other hand, it also has a rich collection of resources on the ground; such as the 6,000 glass slides on art history at the University of Chicago, the racial discrimination historical materials and documents collected by local banker Edward J.

Jin Hao gently repairs the scars of the old house: Kyoto XCHANGE APARTMENTS

In The Lovers in the Labyrinth, Chen Xue wrote a sick writer and partner looking for a place to live in the city. They had settled in an old house. But as they lived in the middle of the day, they all stepped out of their feet. It was the old house that needed care, and the balance between emotion and matter was not found. The house is really a huge container, life has been living for a long time, always lost. As the residence time gradually revealed its defects: water leakage, wall cancer, floor cracks, old and complicated pipelines are difficult to adjust. Mutual friction between the physics, strong collisions, or the violent impact of natural disasters, artificial deliberate transformation, engraved into memory, is more like the scars of life. XCHANGE APARTMENTS, an old house in the Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto, has recently been remodeled into a place for artists, designers, and cultural workers to create and think about. Designing the construction team TANK faced the scars and symptoms of the old house and proposed to incorporate the non-architectural method into the architectural design. The wood floor of the bathroom is made of Urushi-Nuri, a Japanese lacquer lacquer technique. The wood material is coated with a layer of translucent resin to gently reveal the appearance of the wood. It also has waterproof and moisture-proof effects. Polished metal mirrors map the spatial simplicity of the space, but produce a visually distinct layer of real virtual image. Another ancient technique used in space is the lacquer-repaired "Kintsugi", also known as the "Golden Donkey" - you may remember the Taiwanese gilt craftsman Zheng Ting who we have visited before. Use the same technique - bond the broken container with natural lacquer paint, and then describe the gold and silver powder. The TANK construction team applied this method to the cracked floor to fill the gap between the objects due to natural shrinkage or time testing. The crack that fills seems to be the golden stream in the space, dividing the floor into a block rock version, or more like an irregular giant puzzle combination. The thin, trembling lines shimmered in the golden light between the plates. It turns out that the scars in those spaces have never been broken, just to find a way to fit in, to gently cover the damage of life. All Images via TANK.
