http://www.youtube.com/​watch?v=5UlQ36yaxUg&feature​=related

這是日本歷史久遠傳奇迷幻噪音樂隊“酸母寺”的吉他手兼​創始人河端一(Makoto Kawabata)和法國地下硬件噪音界鬼才Dj Urine的全新組合。

話說河端一在新奧爾良的一次演出中與Dj urine相識,然後便產生了與其合作的意向。直到現在​才有機會真正實施,並斷然以亞洲巡演做為開端。

綜合他們自己寫的介紹:首先,這是河端一在酸母寺之外,​個人計劃的一部分。在這個二人組合裡,他主要用吉他製造​出一系列刺耳的迷幻DRONE氛圍。 Dj urine作為資深黑膠碟片粉碎達人,日常破壞噪聲收集​者,二人將攜手帶來:空間迷幻搖滾與扭曲拼貼的變體,加​上被融化掉在異端的琴弦,harsh noise切割摻雜左右。似曾相識的重型硬搖滾風骨影響​並遭遇瘋人院致幻劑的調戲,而最終又把一切打磨、揉碎、​分散、直至消失在一片超驗的寂靜裡。

About the supporting artists:

Wong Chung-fai
Also known as Sin:Ned, an idiosyncratic improviser, experimentalist, live-visualist, mirco-curator and free-lance writer from Hong Kong. Also co-founder of the experimental imprint Re-Records, member of the electro-acoustic duo No One Pulse, and Advisor of soundpocket.

Being a veteran writer of the legendary Hong Kong alternative music magazine MCB (Music Colony B-Weekly), his writings had influenced a wide spectrum of experimental musicians and listeners. While not writing as a pseudo-music critic elaborating his esoteric worldview, in the same idiosyncratic fashion, he spends much of his time hacking and sculpting sonic materials with his laptop and various non-standard electronic gears. With his on-going experimentation embracing improvisation, noise, errors, chaos and randomness, he has been re-visioning an unorthodox sound-making process expressed in extreme dichotomies, and driven by intuition and direct experience.

He has offered performance and creative work for concert, sound installation, workshop, audio-visual and theatrical performance. He had taken part and performed in various art events such as HK Sound and Vision Festival (2003), Get It Louder (2007), Hong Kong & Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture (2007, 2009), Architecture is Art Festival (2009), Notch Festival 2009 Guangzhou Station (2009).

About the artists:

dj sniff
http://www.djsniff.com/
dj sniff (Takuro Mizuta Lippit) is a turntable musician working in the field of improvised and experimental music. His music focuses on the live reconstruction and narrativization of the phonographically amplified - the music, the sound, the technology and the past. To achieve this, he uses a unique setup of custom hardware and software along with one turntable and DJ mixer. He hopes he can reflect his influences from Hip-Hop and Free Jazz not stylistically but through an exploration of a distinct instrumental voice and practice.

He is also a concert/event curator for electronic music and a researcher of music technology.

While studying Art History and Philosophy in Tokyo, he was active as a DJ in the underground electronic music scene and formed a collective called smashTV productions which organized genre-mixing events such as anti-Gravity and bistro-Smash!. In 2002, he moved to New York to pursue graduate studies in computer music and physical computing at NYU's ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program). During this period he released a handful of DJ mixes.

Since 2005 he has been involved with STEIM's (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) R&D lab. From 2007 on, he is STEIM's Artistic Director, guiding the institution's creative output and representing its activities through performing and lecturing around the world.

In 2010, he released his first solo album "the play-back" through Lebanese label Annihaya. During the first half of 2011 his 2nd album based on Evan Parker recordings will be released from Parker's label Psi.

He regularly performs in projects with eRikM, Tatsuhisa Yamamoto, Astro Twin (Ami Yoshida & Utah Kawasaki), Adachi Tomomi, Keir Neuringer, Raed Yassin, Yutaka Makino. In the past he has played with Evan Parker, Otomo Yoshihide, Akira Sakata, David Toop, Martin Tetreault, Michel Waisvisz, DJ L?K?O, Ryu Hankil, John Edwards, Mark Sanders, John Richards, and many others.

Inter-Session


Three musicians from different backgrounds meet in the intersection between acoustic, electro-acoustic and electronic sound qualities. Feedbacks, field recordings and double bass create the raw material, which in pure or processed form is then transformed into a new soundscape. It is a soundscape of dynamic abstraction that invites the audience to enter a state of active listening. Given the distinct background of the three musicians, the musical language promises heterogeneity and multi-dimensionality: noise, drone, lower case electronica, energy, play, research and contemporary composition.

Overseas artists
Claudio Rocchetti _ Italy Fieldrecordings, Feedbacks
Klaus Janek _ Italy Double bass, Laptop
Li Zenghui _ China Saxophone, Voice

Supporting artists:
Nerve (Hong Kong)
Sin:Ned (Hong Kong)

Ticket $120/80*
- Includes one drink
- Limited to 50 tickets only. Available on a first-come-first served basis.

*Full-time students, senior citizens aged 60 or above, people with disabilities and comprehensive Social Security Assistance recipients.

He also strongly believes that geographical, political and social exile is a necessary condition for true and honest creation. He is not interested in the traditional definition of music, in his opinion, all musical theory and systems as cultural concepts must be destroyed. In his latest work, his main concern is to realize drama with sound - electronic and acoustic walls with the architectures of ruins transcribed in the scores.

Sin:Ned
Sin:Ned (Wong Chung-fai), an idiosyncratic improviser, sonic artist, live-visual artist, curator and free-lance writer from Hong Kong. Also co-founder of the experimental imprint Re-Records, member of the electro-acoustic duo No One Pulse, and Advisor of soundpocket.

Being a veteran writer of the legendary Hong Kong alternative music magazine MCB (Music Colony B-Weekly), his writings had influenced a wide spectrum of experimental musicians and listeners. While not writing as a pseudo-music critic elaborating his esoteric worldview, in the same idiosyncratic fashion, he spends much of his time hacking and sculpting sonic materials with his laptop and various non-standard electronic gears. With his on-going experimentation embracing improvisation, noise, errors, chaos and randomness, he has been re-visioning an unorthodox sound-making process expressed in extreme dichotomies, and driven by intuition and direct experience.

He has offered performance and creative work for concert, sound installation, workshop, audio-visual and theatrical performance. He had taken part and performed in various art events such as HK Sound and Vision Festival (2003), Get It Louder (2007), Hong Kong & Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture (2007, 2009), Architecture is Art Festival (2009), Notch Festival 2009 Guangzhou Station (2009).

About the artists:

Ricardo da Silva

Sight and sound performer, Ricardo da Silva comes from Portugal and is now living in Switzerland.

He is especially interested in borderline relations between images and sound and considers both at the same time in his work.

For sound, he works with modular synthesizers, granular synthesis and live sampling. For his visual works, he works with live sampling, noise patterns generators and 3D lightcone sculptures. Active since 2005, he has been playing extensively across Switzerland and Western Europe under various names and collectives such as: Thomas More Project, CINE-NOISE, TV-NOISE, KOMINFORM and his regular name.

Extra bio: RdS is also a film critic interested in unconventional forms of filmmaking and curator for Oblo Cinema in Lausanne (Switzerland) he organized several international festivals devoted to experimental filmmaking and music.

...

Niko[la] Mounoud born chromosome XY at 46° 26' 00'' N, 6° 55' 00'' E. presents his solo project . . .

Instead of using cords, wind or percussions, he prefers to focus his work on the feedback (larsen) of both analogue and digital materials.

Impossible to be bored, challenging to dance, merging of all styles of music, it is a subtle crossover between hard composed parts and sweet improvisations. All of that condensed in a short time live that will definitely clean your ears and reconcile you with noises.

Niko is also curator of some itinerant music events and festivals in Switzerland such as Nocturnes MadeOneShot and LUFF - Lausanne Underground Film & music Festival.
He is the co-founder of an independent laboratory for photography and cinema on celluloid called "On fait du l'art !" based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

For this Asian tour, he will be performing with two recent solo projects: Nunk on Droise and TV Bug.

22/1/2011 2:30-4:30pm
...〈迷走都會節拍〉

座落於尖沙嘴中心地帶的九龍公園,四周環繞著細密都會的節奏。我們每天都隨著這個城市的節拍疾走前行,彼此卻走出不同的步伐。〈公園好聲〉3之《迷走都會節拍》帶來的三個演出單位:Fruitpunch的後朋克節拍、iii的折衷性節拍、KZ(featuring Geniuz F aka Future & Poker aka HO)的Hip Hop節拍;尋找不一樣的都會節拍,反映都市人不一樣的生活態度。

(各場表演時間地點於最下面)

iii


iii是一個充滿叛逆個性,以採樣為本,顛覆音樂體系為樂,且沒有固定成員的筆記本樂團。他們不但四出盜聲,演出時,更不時相互採聲或監守自盜。


iii熱愛廣東流行曲及所有低俗的曲子及被遺忘的流行偶像。但視乎情况而定,他們也不一定只演廣東流行曲。

公園好聲 Sound In The Park (策劃、文:袁智聰)
四個公園,六個地點,六場不同主題的露天音樂表演。

這是一個以融入公園空間為大前提的冬日午後音樂表演活動。所以我們沒有搭建舞台,也沒有巨型揚聲器,而是將音樂會變成公園的閒適愜意氣氛與流動風景一部分,令到音樂伴隨著多點綠色而來。於溫暖的冬日陽光與鳥語花香的環境下,讓樂迷身處一個自由開放的空間欣賞好聲現場音樂演出。

公園是供公眾消遣休憩的戶外場所,香港地少人多,我們這個城市裡商場太多、公園太少,大家要更加珍惜這個綠色的公共空間與城市資源。而「公園好聲」便是要把公園裡的公共空間化作音樂表演的平台、與眾同樂的表演場地。今次「公園好聲」的小型巡演會走遍香港公園、沙田公園、九龍公園和屯門公園;公園裡的廣場、花園、露天劇場和草坪,都會是我們舉行表演的地方。而每次皆會配合不同的表演環境,帶來特定的音樂主題。美好的現場音樂表演,看著樂手與樂迷的互動關係,每每能夠勾勒出一幅美麗而雅緻的畫面。那麼,沒有甚麼美好得過在陽光與樹蔭下於公園的露天空間帶來的音樂演出。

Fruitpunch / iii / KZ

22/1/2011 2:30-4:30pm

Chinese Garden, Kowloon Park

In the midst of Urban Beats

Located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon Park is constantly in the flux of a variety of urban beats. Yet, different paces and rhythms are lived out even if the city has its own basic tempo. Sound in the Park 3: “In the midst of Urban Beats” proudly presents the post-punk beat of Fruitpunch, the eclectic beat of iii and the hip-hop beat of KZ (featuring Geniuz F aka Future & Poker aka HO). An afternoon of different urban beats, 3 acts of different attitudes towards life.

With no fixed members and always in flux, members of iii not only sample from their source materials, but also sample one another and re-sample themselves on stage.iii loves canto-pop and all kinds of outdated cheesy tune and popular icon. But depending on the occasion, one might also spot them playing something else.

Sound in the Park ( Curated by: Yuen Chi-chung)

Outdoor concerts in six different themes take place in six locations in four parks.
“Sound in The Park” is an afternoon concert series aiming to mix music into the park environment. The shows need no stage set, no giant loudspeakers. It is music that is going to be absorbed into the gentle milieu and landscape of the park, furnishing it with more notes of green. Under the winter sun and amidst the comforting environment of the park, music-lovers will have a good chance to enjoy live music in a free and open atmosphere.
A park is a very important outdoor space for people to relax. Given the ever- growing number of people and shopping malls here in Hong Kong, a park is getting even more vital as the public space and resource that city dwellers can share among themselves.
Turning this public space into a music platform and performance venue, Sound in The Park will tour around Hong Kong Park, Kowloon Park, Sha Tin Park and Tuen Mun Park. The piazzas, gardens, amphitheatre and grassland are all places in which great music will be delivered. And the concerts will be tailor-made with themes to fit different park environment.

Great music and the close encounter between music and its audience culminate in a picture that is both eye- and ear-soothing; an enjoyable afternoon filled with the warmth of the sun and the wonders of music. (Text:Yuen Chi-chung)

If you think u r wrong, u r almost right!!

Saturday - Sunday Jan 22- 23, 2011 @葵青劇院 Kwai Tsing Theatre

如果你以為自己錯,那就差不多對了!﹣反轉傳統聲音再創造
黃仲輝

If you think u r wrong, u r almost right!! ─ Unorthodox Remaking of Sound
led by Sin:Ned (Wong Chung-fai)


創意對我們極重要!就連商界也投資越來越多在創意培訓上,鼓勵員工“跳出框框”。但在日常生活中、工作中,缺乏創意仍是惱人的問題。是甚麽阻礙我們“跳出框框”?

透過研究反傳統聲音製造的歷史和實驗,你會發現限制著創意的框框來自單一的理性文化,以及害怕錯誤、混亂、隨機、無序的心態。當你嘗試以反傳統的方法來製造聲音,你將會發現錯誤和無序的美,然後,突破絕對理性的狹隘視野,跳出框框來看問題。

Creativity is of ultimate importance to our existence. Even the commercial world is investing more and more on training their employees to think “out of the box”. However, we are still facing a creativity crisis — in our everyday life and in our work. What is hindering our ability to think out of the box?

Through examining the history and practice of unorthodox sound making, you will see that the lack of creativity is closely related to the one-sided development of our rational culture, and our learned mentality of seeing errors, chaos, randomness and disorder as undesirable results. With hands-on experiment on unorthodox sound making, you will develop an appreciative eye for the beauty of errors and randomness, which in turn, will free us from our tunnel vision of pure rationality, and enable us to see beyond the box.
