從敲擊樂了解音律 | UNDERSTANDING RHYTHM FROM PERCUSSION

沒有音樂被聆聽一次就能被完全破讀,「重聽」或會讓我們發現未被發掘的零碎,卻又環環緊扣的樂藝細作。敲擊襄主辦「襄音」跨媒體聲音展覽,嘗試以各種日常生活物件作配器建構聲景,令敲擊樂貼近日常,觀眾可以與音樂家一同探究聲音,以敲擊節奏重新理解聆聽的意義。展覽將於數日後完滿結束。

No piece of music can be fully comprehended in one listen, “re-hearing” might lead us to the discovery of the unfound yet tightly knit fragments of musical art. Toolbox Percussion is presenting a sound-based exhibition “A Double Listen”, tries to construct soundscape with various everyday objects as instruments, making percussion music closer to everyday life. Audiences can be able to explore sounds with the musicians and understand the meaning of listening again with percussion rhythm. The exhibition will be ended in a few days.

敲擊襄主辦聲⾳展覽「襄⾳」及聲景演出假2021年6⽉19⽇⾄7⽉8⽇在 H Queen’s 17樓向公眾開放。是次展覽為整輯了藝團數年來的擊樂藝術嘗試,以展覽視覺,溯洄過往,注⽬現在。展覽由H Queen’s 及 HART冠名贊助。

Toolbox Percussion is delighted to present a sound-based exhibition “A Double Listen”. The exhibition and its eponymous performances will open to the public on 19 June 2021 at 17/F, H Queen’s, running through to 8 July 2021. “A Double Listen”, serving as a dossier, features many of the past and new aesthetic attempts of Toolbox Percussion. The exhibition is title sponsored by H Queen’s and HART. 

敲擊⾳律的多端變化,⾳樂家或作曲家距離完全的破讀還有很遠。對於敲擊樂的探索,⾄今未曾停歇。展覽是⼀次 跨媒體藝術呈現—融合擊樂與展覽裝置、多頻道聲⾳裝置及全新委約創作的聲⾳序列。

The mechanisms of creating percussive sound are so versatile that musicians or composer are far from fully exploring them. This exhibition encapsulates our work in the form of multimedia conflation of percussive sound and visualized installation, multi-channel audio work, and newly commissioned sound sequences.

展覽是藝團的跨媒界嘗試,由聲⾳藝術家及作曲家趙朗天創作場域聲⾳裝置,在物件和聲⾳之不成款式的錯置中建構聲景,在展覽中較正觀者的聆聽。

The exhibition is Toolbox Percussion’s venture into interdisciplinary practices, featuring sound artist and composer Alain Chiu’s new sound art installation where different objects and sounds are fragmentedly laid out in a finite space, leading audience to construct a sound afterimage, and unique listening experience.

 藝術裝置《圈》是作曲家林丰對擊樂藝術的趣味探索。作品以麻雀演奏樂曲,以聲⾳影像重塑此趣味盎然的擊樂⼩ 品。另外,林丰亦為「襄⾳」創作聲景作品,從散序的聆聽聚耳純粹的擊響⾳樂。

Installation work Round by composer Fung Lam delves into the playfulness of percussive arts. The mahjong playing piece depicts different ways of playing mahjong as the sole instrument of the piece, injecting traits of quotidian pastime into percussion. While a series of spatial performances (as well as site-specific auditory experience) will feature Fung Lam’s room-filling compositional sequences.

展覽的六場聲景演出亦會演繹萊許、基治及楊嘉輝的⾳樂作品。

Positioned as music happenings in a gallery space, these performances will also feature works by Steve Reich, John Cage, and Samson Young.
