Homeward Waves


單出曰聲


2020 



“ So why you back on the shore ? ”

A 90 days of living on the no boundary ocean, it has nothing but sound of wind.
On the endless and boundaryless ocean , the only place wanted to arrive, it’s call Home.
When the sound of the sea washes the shore is up after days of wind only, I know, I am coming back home.

“The affections thus produced are manifested in the sounds that are uttered.” The Book of Rites·Yueji
When the sea washes the shore, the sound produced by the physical action is translated by the brain, and it is transformed into a music of Homeward Waves.
No one is a an island. Back on the shore, we are finally connected.

- “Homeward Waves” capture the motion of waves around the shore, analysis the movement of waves and translated it into musical scale and to a music.



「你又為什麼回到岸上?」

九十天面對無盡的大海,周圍只有風聲。
以為在無盡的大海之上,自由自在,一望無際,其實最想去的,還是回到岸上。
在只有風聲的日子,直到聽到海浪拍打岸邊的聲音響起,終於又再回到岸上了。
《禮記·樂記》:「感於物而動,故形於聲。」
海浪拍打所產生的物理撞擊聲,在漂泊在外已久的腦袋裏,轉化成為一曲「回家了」的音樂。
沒有人是孤島,回到岸上,我們終究連在一起。

*《單出曰聲》擷取拍岸的海浪影像,以影像追蹤分析海浪的流動,把動態位置轉換成音階,再譜成樂曲。
