RADIO SHOW | 16. 04. 2020
‘moon tide lullaby: fragility of sonic memory’ on Eavesdropping on the Wind and Cloud, Talking Drums Radio, Taipei, TW
EP.1 Moon Tide Lullaby: Fragility of Sonic Memory (2019-)
Moon Tide Lullaby is a long-term project made by artist Iris Chun-Tzu Chang. In the work, she utilized multiple field recordings that she collected in Taiwan & London as well as live recording from the transformation between ice and water. The sounds and poems are revealed gradually as the time passes by and which process can be seen as a poetic metaphor of transition between the tangible/intangible identity and memory.
Eavesdropping on the Wind and CloudAn online curation recording by Shih Ya-Tien in collaboration with artists Iris Chun-Tzu Chang, Sarah Song and Yifeat Ziv. The artists collected sounds from the Taiwan’s coastal area, Sahara Desert, and Amazon rainforest as the elements of their works: Moon Tide Lullaby: Fragility of Sonic Memory (2019-), 10 Sec of Sahara (2018), The Echo of Our Breath (2019) and Amazonian Traces of Self (2019). In the form of interviews, the artists share their travel experiences, and process of how they collected the field recordings and then transformed, interpreted the sounds into their own personal practices.

In the introduction to her Sonic Meditations (1974) composer Pauline Oliveros suggests that her eponymous text scores might produce “through continuous work [..] heightened states of awareness [that] may represent a tuning of mind and body”.
Heightened States of Awareness takes its title from Oliveros and brings together the work of the eleven students graduating from the MA Sound Arts in 2019. The exhibited pieces invite a ‘tuning of mind and body’, presenting approaches that may foreground a non-hierarchical listening amidst multi-sensate entanglements with each other and the environment. The exhibition title might also be understood with respect to this moment of increasing environmental and political emergency, asking us to hear questions that attend to local and personal concerns as well as tuning in to wider notions of social in/justice, and sometimes crossing the boundary of the ‘audible’ altogether.

ARIT: The Sound Of Criticism Being Done [ 4:00pm - 4:30pm ] on Resonance FM, London, UK
"Arit" questions identity through language and sound. Conversation is used as a tool to explore communication, and to confront ways of listening and interacting. The space and time where the conversation is held becomes intemporal, pushing communication beyond known boundaries. Like the radio, Arit’s sounds and language evoke how one tunes in or tunes out. Featuring Iris Chun-Tzu Chang, Ava Halloran, Tarik Haskić and Reve Wing Ying Kan. [Repeated Saturday 10.30am.]
