声音漫步:倒麂子

倒麂子是昆明西郊的一座小山,背靠棋盘山,是我常去散步和骑行的地方,从宝珠寺穿越一些小径可以到达筇竹寺。这里的声音包括一些白天散步时候遇到的鸟叫虫鸣还有风声,偶尔遇到其他的散步者。也有夜深人静时候独自藏在山林里眺望城市夜景、滇池和西山时候的录音。最后部分我将山林夜间的虫鸣声与滇池畔轻微的浪声混在一起,形成山水呼应的画面感,这正是在倒麂子散步时能看到的画面。

这些录音绝大多数来自今年2月初至5月初三个多月的时间内,我在昆明的实地录音。这些随机收录的声音片段反映出整座城市从沉寂到恢复生机,个人生活也从公共空间退回私人空间再返回公共空间的过程。私人空间里的生活也实质性地影响到公共空间的开放度,反之亦然,公共生活的关闭让私人生活变得局促和无聊。摇摆在两者之间的日常生活逐渐成为大家不得不克服的更为漫长的“新常态”。

这个录音作品最终收录了24条实地录音片段,每段60秒,每个声音间隔3秒。这是一种平等的排列,它们像货架上的洗手液一样整齐摆放。在这些声音片段中,居家隔离时期的私人生活、媒体讯息、慢慢恢复生机的城市生活交错混合在一起。

“These recordings are recorded in Kunming city, from early February to early May in 2020. The random sound clips reflect the process of the whole city from silence to vitality, and personal life from public to private space and back again. Life in private space substantially affects the openness of public space, and vice versa, the closure of public life has made private life cramped and boring. The daily life that swings between the two has gradually become a longer “new normal” that everyone has to overcome.

This piece comprises 24 field recordings, each 60 seconds, separated by 3 seconds of silence. This is an equal arrangement, and they are arranged as neatly as the hand sanitizer on the shelf. In these sound clips, private life, media messages, and slowly reviving urban life are intertwined during the period of home quarantine.”

a review written by Jennifer Lucy Allan on The Quietus:

At around ten minutes on this collection of one minute long field recordings on Kate Carr’s Flaming Pines label by Chinese artist Luo Fei, is a car horn symphony I could loop and listen to for hours. Read more…

很高兴在The Quietus上看到关于我“疫情时期的声音-昆明”录音的评论,The Quietus是欧洲最大的独立音乐与文化评论的网站,这段关于我作品的文字翻译如下:

在这部由中国艺术家罗菲在凯特·卡尔(Kate Carr)的Flaming Pines品牌上发布的由数条一分钟组成的实地录音作品中,大约在10分钟的地方,一首汽车喇叭交响乐响起。伴随着汽车喇叭的高声响起,后面突然响起了警报器,掠过一架坚固的无人机,听起来就像方向盘喇叭上装了数百个头的声音。这是一首表达疲惫和沮丧的微型交响乐,还有其他数分钟长的中国昆明封禁期间私人和公共生活的片段,其中包括一首哼唱的生日歌——作为洗手指南。这件作品我可以循环听上几个小时。这种结构真的很适合这些素材,感觉更像是戏剧中的短幕,而不是记流水账。随着录音和时间的推移,作品创造出自己的对比和关系。—— Jennifer Lucy Allan , September 22nd, 2020
