Yenting Hsu (Taiwan) uses sound as her primary creation medium. Interweaving field recordings with electronic sounds and objects, she continues to explore documentary and fiction/narrative and imaginary elements of recorded sounds. Mixing with other art media and artistic disciplines, she creates installations, performances, audio documentaries, electroacoustic music and more. Yenting Hsu is part of the Touch Mentorship programme.

許雁婷(台灣) 以聲音為主要創作媒材。交織田野錄音、電子和物件聲響,持續探索錄音聲音的紀錄及虛構、敘事及想像特質,亦時常混融其他媒材及藝術領域創作,以裝置、表演、聲音紀錄片、電子原音音樂等形式呈現。許雁婷是Touch領航計劃的成員之一。

Flash 須臾

As the continuation of the Relight+MUSIC project collaborating with zhēnzhēn Stained Glass lab, Flash is dedicated to the theme of ‘time’. Sound, music and glass exist as art forms of time. In this album, sound materials are from samples of glass sounds, accompanied with field recordings, electronic sounds and voices. I use various approaches to imagine and depict the concept of time and different time frames.

Unknown deconstructs one sound of patterned glass, discovers and reconstructs the hidden melody within the glass sound. Exploring the unknown in the known to uncover the veil of time. It is the prologue.

Coordinates illuminates moments often ignored and amplifies the corners of cities. Following these inconspicuous fragments, we get the direction of our mundane lives.

January. Winter. The beginning. Paces harmonized in one. Cool passion. Born and reborn.

Circle. Some scientists believe that we have memories from the past and the future both. Past memories and future memories come together as a Circle. The nearest past is the closest to the farthest future.

False or True is made with a no-input mixer. It resonates with the present and acceptance. Without editing carefully – like I usually do in my sound creation – this track reminds me of living in the moment, and simply accepting the consequences.

Starry flashes back to my first impression of listening to the sound of pattern glass placed on a turntable. Each piece of glass is like a planet, twinkling within the space of unique rhythms and sounds.

In this sound universe, let’s fold and unfold time and space incomprehensible to our human senses.

須臾 Flash

《須臾》延續自與真真鑲嵌玻璃研究所合作的「Religh+MUSIC光音」計劃,主題導向「時間」。聲音、音樂與玻璃都是時間的藝術。專輯中的素材來自玻璃聲音採樣、田野錄音、電子聲響及人聲等。在各曲目中運用不同創作方式想像、描繪時間的概念與種種時間框架。

〈未知〉解構一種花紋玻璃的聲響,發現並重構隱匿在玻璃聲音裡的旋律。在已知中探尋未知,揭露時間的面紗。是為序曲。

〈座標〉點亮經常被忽略的時刻,放響城市的角落。跟著這些不起眼的生活片段,我們在平凡日常中有了方向。

〈一月〉。冬天。開始。步調協鳴為一。冷冷的熱情。生與重生。

〈迴圈〉。有些科學家相信我們同時擁有過去和未來的記憶。過去的記憶與未來的記憶會形成一個迴圈。最近的過去與最遠的未來最靠近。

〈虛實〉以無輸入混音器(no-input mixer)創作,與「當下」及「接受」共振。一反我創作聲音的常態,這一首並未仔細剪輯,十分當下,僅僅接受經過一段時間後的結果。

〈星塵〉回返我第一次聆聽放上唱盤的傳統花紋玻璃聲音,每片玻璃都像一個星球,在獨特的節奏與聲響中閃爍。

在這個聲音宇宙裡,折疊我們難以理解的時間與空間。
