Multichannel sound-light installation, speakers, field recordings, 2016
Repetend continues the experimental recording method on a regional scale. Eight of 24-hour recordings were made at the gates of the city center and rural area in Paris, and with 256-time-speed acceleration and synchronization, this site-specific installation connects the structure of different soundscapes with the rhythms of contemporary life by representing the movements converged by countless individuals.
REPETEND: Installation and project CDs at Jed Voras Gallery, Paris, 2016
Developed during my residency at Cité Internationale des Arts, Repetend continues the experimental recording method the artist devised in his previous projects Time Concentrated on a larger scale. In this work, I took a portable recorder out to parks, subway stations, streets and other public spaces in Paris at the gates of the city center and rural area, made respective recordings of each location for 24 hours, and then condensed the files into abstract noises through a 256-time- speed acceleration, and therefore to observe and compare different structures and textures of soundscapes from these condensed recordings of each location.
In collaboration with the independent art platform The Voyeris, this work is exhibited in Jed Voras Gallery, Paris. In its presentation, a multi-channel installation played and synchronized each time-lapsed recording in a loop. With the immersive drones surrounding the exhibition space, this works attempts to connect the structure of different soundscapes with the rhythms of contemporary life.
