Administrative or Biographical history

A experimental sound project presents the intensity and tension using 'Drift' as in motor racing technique where the driver intentionally oversteers while maintaining control, the concept is to propose psychological digressing in geography of sounds from one area to the next and explore its diverse aspects through technical and creative contents that involves crossing platforms and various disciplines of the artists. The focus is to allow the audience to understand sound as an art form and open up to incidents and situations to arrive at their new listening experience. With combination of solo performances, sound installations, improvising sessions, workshops and lectures, the project investigates unheard perceptions of sound through works by international / local sound artists via different formats under experimental approach. A series of experimental sound project will begin with the first project: DURATION.

Project #2: TOOL
Knowing and mastering tools is one of important factor for sound artist and musician to express their own work. Tools transmit idea into sound, transmit sound into materials and often reflect artist’s creative approach that could perform not only as an object but also as a concept. Some artists turn daily objects into sound devices, some interact with typical instruments in their unique manner, some approach their body as a tool turning movements into sound, opening up possibilities of what could be an instrument based on various purposes. As instruments evolve so is the listening experience. The concept of tools for this session is to perceive instrument as a discipline in its own right that the artists will explore its open-ended interpretation and exchange knowledge of tools as sound making with the audience.
