水的多樣存在蘊含生命的神秘訊息。

 

大氣中的水凝結、墜落於地表,在不同的物質與結構上敲響出差異的頻率和節奏,譜出景觀的樂曲。從天而降的雨聲啟迪了一場用聲音,探索水元素訊息傳送的旅程。經由不同震波的漫延進入共振的聆聽與揭示「水」之存在與人、物質、環境和技術之間交互碰撞的聲響連結和相對關係。

 

聽 雨和河流

聽 人類活動中的水、虛擬水

聽 傳送中的水、工程中的水、機械中的水、變異中的水、大氣

 

她捎來的振動與能量,一步步指向「水」遠古的發源處:宇宙 而探索之旅未完,持續著

 

這是一張集合近三年「水」元素的聲響錄音編曲而成的專輯。田野聲音採集自河流、傳統魚貨市場、台南科學園區加壓水塔與儲水池、廢水處理場、濕地、貿易展會場⋯⋯等,包含台灣台南、韓國完州、日本東京、美國聖荷西等地,歷經兩個不同的國際駐村計畫:竹圍工作室2017國際藝術進駐交換計畫、聖荷西藝術與文化交流奬。

The diverse forms of existence of water contain secret messages about life.

 

Congealed in the atmosphere, water falls to the surface of the earth, making sounds of divergent frequencies and rhythms on different substances and structures, composing music about landscape. The sound of the rain falling from the sky inspires a journey where the transmission of messages of elements of water is explored through sound. Through the propagation of diverse seismic waves, resonant listening unfolds, while the mutually crashing sound connections and relative relationship among the existence of “water”, and human, matter, environment and technology are revealed.

 

Listen, rain and the river

Listen, water within human activities, and virtual water

Listen, water in transmission, water in construction, water in machines, water in mutation, and the atmosphere

 

Step by step, the vibration and energy she brings point to the ancient source of “water”: the universe.

And the journey of exploration continues, unfinished.

 

This is an album including compositions with sound recordings of “water” elements collected in the past three years. The sound from field recording was collected from rivers, traditional fish markets, water towers and storage tanks in the Southern Taiwan Science Park, sewage disposal plants, wetlands, trade show venues, etc., traversing Tainan in Taiwan, Wanju in Korea, Tokyo in Japan and San Jose in the U.S., and covering two international arts residency projects: Bamboo Curtain Studio “2017 International Residency Exchange Program” and  2019 Arts and Cultural Exchange Grant of San Jose, United States.
