就在電影的聲音同步技術開始普及的1930年,德裔美國人Oskar Wilhelm Fischinger製作了一系列有聲的實驗動畫短片,片中抽象的圖案與聲音緊緊相隨,至今看來仍饒富趣味;這或許是動態影像史上第一次使用動態影像去讓聲音「被看到」的嘗試,開展出視覺與聽覺兩種感官聯動的新可能性。

When the synchronization of sound to film first became widespread in the 1930s, German-American Oscar Fischinger produced a series of experimental animation synchronized to music in which abstract patterns and sound intensively engaged. It still appears delightful today. Among the first overtures that visualize sound with motion pictures, it opened up a new possibility of composing through the interaction of visual and auditory sensations.

In the screening of works selected by Jeph Lo, music plays an important structural role, where the image and even the editing is led by the sound. Usually shown in the context of “video art”, sound and music are frequently considered secondary in the works presented. This screening program invites audience to pay attention to the soundtrack, and consider how artists think about the relationship between audio and visual elements in their work.

About the screening programmer:
Jeph Lo co-curated the exhibition Altering Nativism: Sound Cultures in Post-war Taiwan (2014), and was the chief editor of the exhibition’s catalogue/reader. Lo is the co-founder of TheCube Project Space (Taipei), the main contributor to and editor of Walk the Music – Taipei Music Map since ‘90 (2000), and the translator of Altered States: The Story of Ecstasy Culture and Acid House (2002).
