Collapsing Ourselves






Basque聲音藝術家Mattin長期在噪音和即興表演領域上創作,探究實驗聲音藝術生產裡的社會與經濟結構,作品形式包括現場表演、錄音與寫作。透過觀念性手段,他質問即興表演的屬性與界限,尤其著重其傳統指射下的 「自由與持續創新」及作為一種廣被認可的「類型」之間的關係。http://www.mattin.org/

We want to collaborate but we don’t want to do music as it is usually understood, nevertheless we will do a concert.
We will reflect on the material conditions that we are embedded in.
We want to learn if it is possible to experience the world we live in on the basis of differences and not only in terms of identity, even though we might be tested and suffer in the process.
We will share that process which is contingent on how we gather conditions.


How can we conceive free improvisation
in conditions of unfreedom?
Mattin’s concert will explore improvisation
against the notion of free will
and self-expression.


Mattin is a Basque artist working with noise and improvisation. His work seeks to address the social and economic structures of experimental sonic artistic production through live performance, recordings and writing.Using a conceptual approach, he aims to question the nature and parameters of improvisation, specifically the relationship between the idea of ”freedom” and constant innovation that it traditionally implies, and the established conventions of improvisation as a genre. He considers improvisation not only as an interaction between performers and instruments, but as a situation involving all the elements that constitute a concert situation, including the audience and the social and architectural space. He tries to expose the stereotypical relation between active performer and passive audience, producing a sense of strangeness and alienation that disturbs this relationship. http://www.mattin.org/

Born in Yunlin, Taiwan, Hong-Kai Wang works with sound as a conceptual means to investigate social relations and the construction of new social space, focused on a collaborative and process-driven approach to production. Her work spans interventions, performance, workshops, publication and installations, in a networked excavation of social memory embedded in listening and sound as forms of perceptual, cognitive organization and of political questions of relation and harmony. http://w-h-k.net/index.html
