Time As Prologue│時與光前序



時間:03 / 22 (Sun.)
地點: Changee 噪咖
時間:18:30/入場 19:00/準時開始
入場費:NT$.150 (含飲料)


≼●≽ Time As Prologue│時與光前序

時間並不存在。

展現聲音並不是有關於時間的工作。而是有關於逃離時間的枷鎖,那牢不可破地把我們定義在現有現實概念的想像。
...
“時與光前序”是一個試圖透過形式與抽象、連續和永恆之間的抗衡,去超越時間、無視時間的聲影演出。

時間應是無關緊要的。

There is no time.

Working with sound is not about working with time. It is about escaping our perception of time, that almost unchangeable concept that holds together and defines our reality.

"Time as Prologue" is an audio and visual performance attempting to go beyond time, to defy time, through the struggle between form and abstraction, continuity and timelessness.

Time shall be irrelevant.


≼●≽ 演出藝術家

[ 黃仲輝 (aka Sin:Ned) ]

香港即興、實驗及噪音演奏者,相信一種可透過混沌、誤差及極端性而直接體驗的純物理性的聲音神秘主義。他是實驗音樂廠牌Re-Records (www.re-records.com) 及Twenty Alpha的創辦人、聲音藝術團體「聲音掏腰包」的顧問,樂團 No One Pulse、After Doom、adeo、underture等之核心成員,亦是演出系列NOISE to SIGNAL 的主謀。

作為一位前樂評人,他的文字劍走偏鋒,影響了一眾香港及中國實驗樂手及聆聽者。作為一位實驗演奏者,他的創作角度依然偏險而富爭議性,並曾參演「大聲展」(2007) 、「港深城市\建築雙城雙年展」(2007,2009) 、「建築是藝術節」(2009) 、「北歐音樂節廣州站」(2009) 、「福岡極端音樂節」(2012) 、「新視野藝術節」(2012) 、「密集音樂節」(2013) 、「Kill The Silence音樂節」(2013,2014)、「自由野」(2013) 、「失聲祭」(2014) 等項目。他的作品,先後被輯錄於比利時先鋒音樂廠牌Sub Rosa的《An Anthology of Chinese Electronic Music》及《An Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music Vol. 7》。


[ Shycacti ]

本名吳修銘(Wu Siou Ming),從事聲音、的影像創作,包含數位音像、裝置、演出、配樂,涵蓋聲音藝術、環境電子音樂。作品常以聽覺的位置出發,探索現代生活中人們的各種信仰與價值的差異,以及人們處於整體環境中的細微感知與其所處的存在形式。

演出介紹-日夢│

「當這般的白日夢攫住了冥想的人,細節變得模糊,所有的畫面消逝,光陰不覺流走,空間漫無止境的延伸。」- 巴舍拉
「日夢」電子音像演出計劃。「日夢」是一張弛放、環境電子樂類型的小專輯,由shycacti於2013~14年間製作的,共有9首歌曲總長度41分鐘, 專輯名稱的用意不僅是希望能帶給聽眾宛若一場41分鐘的白日夢一般,更著重在開啟聽覺上的各種感受層次,並且也藉著演出的形式,探討不同地方或場域所俱有的獨特感受,與聆聽的經驗之間可能形成的某種關係。


[ 紀柏豪 ]

成長於台灣臺北,作品大致上涵蓋但不限於現場電子、電聲作曲、流行音樂與影視配樂。近期對互動與生成式音樂很感興趣,將透過作曲、演出與裝置等形式,持續探索聲音的可能性。作品集 http://chipohao.com/

演出介紹-Autogenous Noise│自體噪音

利用數位反饋噪訊不斷的延伸、複製與流竄,結合即時音訊反饋與自動運作系統,試圖去控制不斷變化、演進的反饋噪音與其不可預測性跟多樣性,並且透過計算相位差的方式,將反饋噪音視覺化。

聲響跟形式其實是一體兩面。如果我們將聲音視為「時間的產物」,那麼反饋(feedback)的現象,似乎就在聲響本身與環境間創造了特殊的關係。雖然這些破音與空間聲響是自動透過自身的反饋生成,但我們仍可透過不同方式去與其互動,好似這些聲音有了自己的意志與生命。在失控的邊界去干擾聲響的流動,我們或多或少也在與難以預測的機率即興演出,而最終輸出的聲響與操作者輸入的指令間,仍可被察覺到其中交互影響的關聯性。

《艺鵠場域定聲 | 緩燃 02》

來自意大利,唱作另類民歌的噪音藝術家Caligine,會與法國電子影音藝術家~1escV?合作,為我們緩燃原音與電子、聲音與影像之間的人性交接點。他們是次合作,將會遊走於預編曲子與即興演奏之間。甜美的旋律音色背後,是淡淡的、歷久不散的實驗性回甘。而為他們打頭陣的,是本土敲擊及結他二人組The Language Lab。

《緩燃》是《艺鵠場域定聲》計劃底下的一系列迷你演出聚會。每次演出聚會,我們都會邀請不同的創意音樂人合作,為大家在一個開放而親密的環境底下,試煉先鋒創意音樂的闊度、彈性及感性體溫。

ACO Sound-On-Site: hyper_text_one


Text by itself is meaningless. It is a web of socially constructed anchor relationally defined by one another. Sound by itself is rationally meaningless. It is simply the other side of the same coin.

Cutting through text with sound, and weaving sound with text, between listening and understanding, may be, there will be a possibility of understanding by not being able to understand…

“hyper_text” is a series of artistic investigation on book, text, reading, literature and sound under the new ACO Sound-On-Site program.

《艺鵠場域定聲 | 超文本一》

文字本身沒有意義。聲音亦如是。它們只是同一本質且無法獨存的兩種不同表像。文字與聲音背後,是千絲萬縷、交互緊扣並相互定義著的理解網絡。

以聲音切入文字,復以文字編織聲音,聽與懂之間,或者會有一種因不懂而懂的可能性…

《超文本》是《艺鵠場域定聲》計劃底下一系列以文字及聲音為主題,試圖從形式超越意義的過程中,重塑意義本質的混合媒體項目。

ACO Sound-On-Site | Space Oddity #1: From Below

 
ACO Sound-On-Site | Space Oddity #1: From Below

Staircase exists on the edge of our memory, somewhere between subconscious and unconscious. Silently, it stays at the back, awaiting the forgotten. With a gesture pointing towards the underworld, it connects different spaces and floors of the building. It is the cradle of dream. Archetypal psychological analysis of space begins here…

Space Oddity is a series of space exploration session under the new ACO Sound-On-Site program. It is an alchemical lab to explore and develop a dialogue with the specific space in an unconventional manner.

《艺鵠場域定聲 | 空間置異之一 : 從下》

樓梯是一個處於被遺忘邊緣的空間。那是一個潛意識,甚或是無意識的地帶。在意識與想像以外,默默地,就在那裡,成為被遺棄物的收容所,以一種通向冥界的體態,貫連著大廈不同的空間與樓層。這是一個夢的育兒所。空間的原型心理分析,由這裡開始…
