Dashilan'r, Beijing

Design Week

Participatory project

The urban environment presents itself to us primarily as chaos, as a whirr of noise, smells and flashing images. In its totality, the experience of the city is an overwhelming compilation of infinite momentary spectacles and events.

The city speaks to us, night and day, with the voices and the actions of every citizen, transmuted into something different, both deafening and to which we are deafened.

 

Amidst the buzz of the city, waxing and waning, but never ceasing, there are sounds representative of individual lives. Can sound, then, act as a means through which to explore the diverse, myriad meanings of the city?

 

For the 2013 Beijing Design Week we created a participatory event designed to focus people's attention on the sounds of the city. On registering for the event, participants will be provided with a sound recording device and a kit which will include instructions and a set of four interpretable themes. Participants will then, whilst traveling the streets of Beijing, attempt to uncover—to excavate—sounds which they believe relate in some manner to the themes.

 

When participants return the recording devices, we will upload their recordings onto our sound installation, where each theme will have a dedicated booth in which a medley of recordings will play. The installation will develop into a comprehensive, participant-created set of themed soundscapes of the city.

 

 

城市环境呈现给我们的大多是混乱、噪音的漩涡、味道和转 瞬即逝的影像。总而言之,对城市的体验是令人难以抗拒 的,是无限刹那间场面与事件的集合。

城市每天都在不分昼夜地对我们诉说。城市里每一个居民的声音和行为都变形为另一种震耳欲聋而我们亦熟听无闻的东西。

 

在城市的纷乱与无尽的兴衰之中,有一些声音代表着独立的生命,像是一部宏大的城市戏剧中流浪的传奇角色。所以,声音能否成为一个探寻城市多样而 庞杂的意义之途径?

 

在完成报名后, 我们将给每位参与者一个录音机、一份活动说明书和五个可以由参与者自由诠释的主题。 参与者将在穿梭北京大街小巷的同时试图找到、发掘并记录那些他们认为与某个主题相关的声音。本次活动不要求参与者为所有的主题找到相对应的录音,但如能达成这种参与强度当然更好。

 

当参与者送还录音设备的时候, 我们将把大家采集的声音上载到一个声音装置上。 每个主题都将有一个独立播放亭。最终成果将是一个内容多

元并由参与者们共同完成的城市声音图景。
