MicroSleepDub, The First Hour

 

WING is delighted to invite sound artist Peter Lenaerts for a residency from 17 to 27 November.

 

For his performance in WING, the artist will perform the first hour of MicroSleepDub, a sleep performance that usually goes for 8 hours.

 

The sleep performance MicroSleepDub is about micro sound, architecture and urbanism. It’s a durational performance built around a sound composition for dub plates. In MicroSleepDub, Peter Lenaerts listens and looks for sounds that are too quiet, too vague, or too low. By using the microphone as a microscope, he zooms in and amplifies these neglected, underexposed and discarded sounds. MicroSleepDub is an all night performance, where listening and sleeping are both encouraged.

 

In preparation for MicroSleepDub, Lenaerts spent a week recording in Nansha, a so-called State Level New Area in China. 15 years ago it was rural farmland, now it’s a rapidly developing city with high-rise apartments, office buildings, shopping malls, hotels, and a dilapidated entertainment park. It’s a city built for one million, but the current population is around 300,000. Nansha is not a ghost town, because no one left, but not many people have arrived yet, giving the city an eerie and empty feeling. Nansha is caught between a rural past and high-tech future, the present that lies in between is out of sync with reality, and already slowly but surely falling apart. Lenaerts also collected sounds during two nights alone at the iconic Sydney Opera House where he recorded its empty theater spaces, rehearsal and dressing rooms, and concert hall. With these recordings, Lenaerts creates a live soundtrack for four dub plates – LPs without a protective layer causing the groove to wear itself out and making the sound disintegrate over the playing time.

 

In addition to his research in Nansha, Lenaerts will explore the city of Hong Kong to challenge the way people experience the urban environment and discover how architects and urban planners take sound into account. By focusing on sounds usually ignored or filtered by what we see, the artist questions our perception, which nowadays is largely dominated by vision.

 

The residency is supported by Flanders.

Thanks to Orlean Lai and Samson Young.

Bio:

 

Peter Lenaerts is a Belgian sound artist active in the fields of performance, contemporary dance and film. Lenaerts is fascinated by empty spaces and invisible or acousmatic sound. Sound that doesn’t scream for attention but sneaks into the listener’s ear unnoticed. Sound without ego, pure sound, with a focus on the medium rather than the maker.

 

Recent work includes Phantom Opera (2016) & MicroSleepDub (2015). Phantom Opera is a radio piece that explores the room tones and acousmatic or phantom sounds of the Sydney Opera House. MicroSleepDub is a durational sleep performance built around a sound composition of room tone and field recordings from a new city in China and the Sydney Opera House. Apart from his own work, he has created soundtracks and composed music for choreographers and performance artists like Mette Ingvarsten, Andros Zinsbrowne, Salva Sanchis, ao.

 

He strongly believes that in a culture dominated by visuals, nothing is as powerful, intense, and rewarding as simply listening.

 

He lives and works in Sydney and Brussels.

《微睡眠混音》,第一小時

 

永天台很榮幸能邀請到聲音藝術家Peter Lenaerts於11月17至27期間駐留。

 

他將在永天台演出《微睡眠混音》的第一小時,這睡眠演出通常持續8小時。

 

《微睡眠混音》是一個有關微聲、建築和都市主義的睡眠演出。這持續的演出圍繞為 dub plates 而創作的聲音。在《微睡眠混音》中,Peter Lenaerts聆聽並尋找特別安靜的、特別模糊的或特別低沉之聲。以錄音咪作顯微鏡,他讓這些被忽視、欠曝光、被丢棄的聲音拉近並放大。《微睡眠混音》是個一整晚的演出,過程中,鼓勵觀眾聆聽與睡眠。

 

為籌備《微睡眠混音》,Lenerts花了一星期在中國廣東省廣州市南沙區錄音,南沙乃屬中國所謂「國家級新區」。15年前,該區仍是鄉郊農田,現在卻已是一個發展迅速的城市,滿佈高樓公寓、辨公大厦、商場酒店及一個日久失修的遊樂公園。這是一個為一百萬人口而建的城市,但目前人口只有約30萬。南沙不是個鬼城,因為沒有人離開,但很多人還沒有到達,令這城更添一份怪異不安與空虛感。南沙被農村的過去及高科技的未來所牽絆,當下未能與現實同步,卻已緩慢、確切地步向崩潰。Lenaerts亦花了兩個晚上,獨自在地標建築 一 悉尼歌劇院收集聲音,為空空如也的劇院空間、排練室、更衣室和音樂廳錄音。有了這些錄音,Lenaerts製作了4個dub plates的現場配樂 一 這些LP沒有保護層,聲音的脈搏會自然損耗,在播放時漸漸被侵蝕、瓦解。

 

南沙的研究以外,Lenaerts將探索香港,挑戰人們體驗城市環境的方式,並發掘建築師和城市規劃師在設計時如何考慮聲音配置。將專注力放在被忽略或視而不見的聲音時,藝術家帶出以視覺主導的疑問。

 

本藝術駐留計劃獲Flanders支持。

特別鳴謝黎蘊賢及楊嘉輝。

簡歷:

 

Peter Lenaerts 是比利時聲音藝術家,活躍於表演藝術、當代舞及電影領域。Lenaerts為空的空間和隱形或唯聲的聲音而著迷。那些不會尖叫吸引注意,但卻悄悄地溜進聽者耳朵的聲音、沒有自我的、純淨的、重點放在媒介而不在於發聲者的聲音。

 

最新作品包括《Phantom Opera》(2016)和《微睡眠混音》(2015)。《Phantom Opera》是個收音作品,探索悉尼歌劇院房間的音調及劇院內的唯聲或一切幻影純聲。《微睡眠混音》是個持續的睡眠演出,圍繞一個中國新城市及悉尼歌劇院的房間音調及現場錄音的聲音作品。

 

除了自己的藝術作品,他亦與編舞家和表演藝術家合作,為他們製作配樂及作曲,當中包括:Mette Ingvarsten、Andros Zinsbrowne、Salva Sanchis及ao等。
