Flux, is the state of everything at every moment.
Images are our memories of the reality, yet audiovisual synthesis
A concert, also a journey for exceptional experience of digital sound and light.
Artists of two places, sensing the same fluid time-space,
yet transformed into two different poetic forms of performance.

細緻觀察,發現微密之間在動;
景像、聲音,是虛擬合成,
卻又記憶真實;電子數碼,原來可以如此起伏延綿。
既是音樂會,亦是一次視覺與聽覺交織的光影旅程。
兩地創作人,在感應一樣流動的時空,卻轉化成兩種截然不同的詩意。

“RHEO”
Ryoichi Kurokawa

Three dimensional pixel sculptures are the result of Ryoichi Kurokawa’s audiovisual synthesis. Kurokawa destructs and reconstructs architectonic and organic abstractions with precision, coercing a complete surrendering of the senses. Minimal, yet chaotic conflux of visual and auditory perception merges into an experience of memory and ambiguity where virtual and actual images are no longer distinguishable. Kurokawa uses what he calls “audiovisual organ” to compose spatial-time sculptures out of digitally generated material, formed from analogue field recordings. Abstract sound and imageries are precisely synchronized and juxtaposed, asserting a form of glitch minimalism re-assembled into complex and highly rhythmic audio-visual landscapes.

Ryoichi Kurokawa
Born in 1978 in Osaka, Japan. Ryoichi is an audiovisual artist, and his work takes on multiple forms: projections, recordings, installation and live performance. In recent years, his works are shown at international festivals and museums including Tate Modern [UK], Transmediale [DE], Shanghai eArts [CN], and Sonar Festival [ES]. In 2010, he was awarded the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica in the Digital Musics & Sound Art category.

“SOLSTICE TO SOLSTICE”
Nerve + npool [HK]

Nerve digitally synthesized environmental sound as the four seasons, and modulate the representational sound into music as the three intervals in between. npool turns the theatre into a site for visualizing networks of co-beings, and rejoice with the sound as one. While prompting associations and reconnecting memories of seasons, they also lead audience to another perspective of the reality. This is a journey traveling through the layers of invisibles.

Collaboration between sound and visuals, never aimed at describing the same scenery, nor it was generated from one by another. Only by summoning them up, the whole landscape can finally be seen.

Nerve
Nerve is an alias of Steve Hui for presenting music. Graduated from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts with a Master Degree in Composition and Electronic Music, Hui is a member of experimental electronic music group VSOP. His creative work has been presented at various festivals including: Hong Kong Arts Festival, New Vision Arts Festival and Creative Cities (Hong Kong in London). His first orchestral work Re-Autumn was commissioned by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta. In 2010, he was commissioned by Zuni Icosahedron to compose his first opera The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci.

npool
npool has been a tag following the name of Jamsen Law for more than a decade. Born and grow up in Hong Kong, Jamsen’s artistic interests and explorations span from video to theatre and installation arts. Jamsen’s screen-based media artworks have been widely exhibited in Asia, Europe and Americas. In recent years, he has started curating media arts related exhibitions, artist-in-residence and collaborative projects. Jamsen is now teaching at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

“RHEO” – 黑川良一
黑川良一,一人同時包辦視覺與聲音創作。今次帶來的作品《Rheo》,他將視覺與聲音編組成一體,在不斷拆解與重構的過程中,築成了有機及抽象的立體數碼雕塑般視覺影像。簡約、郤蘊含混雜喧鬧的視覺與聲音元素,能勾起觀眾似曾相識的經驗,記憶中真實與虛擬影像混為一體。黑川以田野錄音作素材,衍生出數碼影像,以他稱為「聲影器官」的程式,編作成結合「時」、「空」元素的雕塑。抽象的聲音與影像既同步一體,又互相對衡,產生出複雜而有節奏的聲影風景。

1978年出生於日本大阪。他的創作結合聲音與影像,以不同形式呈現,包括放映、錄音、裝置及現場表演。作品近年獲廣泛關注,並於多個國際藝術節及美術館展出,包括英國倫敦泰特現代美術館、德國柏林Transmediale媒體藝術展、中國上海國際電子藝術節、西班牙Sonar音樂節等。於2010年,黑川更獲Prix Ars Electronica電子藝術大奬 (電子音樂及聲音藝術界別) 的年度金獎。

“SOLSTICE TO SOLSTICE” – Nerve + npool
Nerve (許敖山發表音樂的代號) 與 npool (羅琛堡的創作別名) 的合作作品《Solstice to Solstice》,是聲音與影像,也是時間與空間、感應與記憶。時間流逝,看不見亦聽不到,唯有透過周遭景物的律動,時空感官方可連成一體。這是一次從無形色相交織而成的聲影旅程。

Nerve 以電子合成音色模擬大自然聲響,引發對季節的共鳴,然而四季並非主角,過渡期才是焦點所在。四段複合的聲景,三段過渡的變奏,是具象通往意象的連綿交替。npool 把劇場轉化成物像相連的樞杻,讓景物、時空與聲音接合。聲音與影像,不以任何一方衍生對方,卻是平衡共生,唯有兩者相加,才是一遍完整的風景。

Nerve (許敖山 Steve Hui)
香港演藝學院音樂碩士(作曲及電子音樂),實驗電子音樂組合VSOP成員。其作品曾於多個藝術節演出,包括香港藝術節、新視野藝術節及創意都市 – 倫敦。2004年由香港小交響樂團委約創作管弦樂作品《四季》及2010年由進念二十面體委約創作多媒體歌劇《利瑪竇的記憶宮殿》。

npool (羅琛堡 Jamsen Law)
羅琛堡生於香港,長於香港。對藝術的興趣與探索涉及錄影、裝置及劇場。作品廣於亞洲、歐洲及美洲各地展覽。近年開始積極統籌與媒體藝術有關的不同型式的展覽、藝術家駐校計劃和藝術合作。現任教於香港中文大學,香港城市大學及香港科技大學。

Workshop工作坊
Hearing your body, Seeing my voice
聽身‧見聲

It is not just about sound and visual, but perception of time-space.
How senses intertwine and interact with what we see and hear?
How would our experience differ with the different composition of audio and visual?
Let’s explore together with us!

聲音、影像、觀者、空間,一齊緊密相連。聆聽與觀察,經驗互相影響、對照。
互動如何展開?不同的排列組合,如何改變觀與感?從這次集體創作的過程中一同探尋。
