Kunming record released by Flaming Pines

我的“疫情时期的声音-昆明”田野录音作品由英国策展人Kate Carr的厂牌火焰松Flaming Pinesbandcamp上正式发行,欢迎收听和购买;-)

My field recording “Kunming record during Covid​-​19” is now released officially by Flaming Pines on bandcamp, welcome to listen and purchase it;-)




“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
