070919 某次深夜在快餐店遇到一位自言自语的食客。其语序极其奇怪,反复跳跃,无法听出完整的逻 辑语句,但似乎有某些规律。受启发,尝试用在一定规律下的随机序列数来控制一段语句录音 播放位置,构成全新语言与声音的线性序列。

声音表演
“初冬之晨” 徐程2014年所作的声音作品,向声乐作品“冬之旅”的致敬。意象表现诗句中那一望无际的 冬日旷野,避开这浮华尘世,望着朔⻛中的⻛信旗和冰封的河面,那个寂寞、孤独、对现实不 满、追求渺茫理想⺩国又终不可得的苦闷灵魂。他离开熟悉的城市,一个人走在,听着⻛雪声 和邮⻋的叮铃声。在飛忽的旅途中寻 找内心的安宁。

the Prophets in Concrete 钢铁和混凝土堆积成圆筒形的多层建筑结构,错综分布,延绵十几公里。管道建筑前后链接贯 通,仅有少部分区域暴露在天空下。不同人种、民族在这里混居。“管中城的音景调查”即是 我在2006-2016这10年间所收集到的声景调查之混合。

作品名称:日轮
2013年
影像投影/声音装置 “日轮”所关注的仍然是感官现实体验的记录和重构。不同时间状态而同一位置的现实影像并 置,以极慢速度播放。 数个不同时空下的极慢速同步现场声音被空间混合成一个现实中不存 在而似曾闻识的虚拟声场。
