DRIFT A series of experimental sound project
Project#2: TOOL

by BACC exhibition dept. in collaboration with SO::ON Dry FLOWER
31 January - 1 February 2015
Multi - Function Room, 1st floor, Meeting Room 501, 5th floor and BACC common area

A experimental sound project presents the intensity and tension using 'Drift' as in motor racing technique where the driver
intentionally oversteers while maintaining control, the concept is to propose psychological digressing in geography of sounds
from one area to the next and explore its diverse aspects through technical and creative contents that involves crossing platforms
and various disciplines of the artists. The focus is to allow the audience to understand sound as an art form and open up to
incidents and situations to arrive at their new listening experience. With combination of solo performances, soundinstallations,
improvising sessions, workshops and lectures, the project investigates unheard perceptions of sound through works by
international / local sound artists via different formats under experimental approach. A series of experimental sound project
will begin with the first project: DURATION.

Project #2: TOOL
Knowing and mastering tools is one of important factor for sound artist and musician to express their own work. Tools transmit
idea into sound, transmit sound into materials and often reflect artist’s creative approach that could perform not only as an object
but also as a concept. Some artists turn daily objects into sound devices, some interact with typical instruments in their unique
manner, some approach their body as a tool turning movements into sound, opening up possibilities of what could be an instrument
based on various purposes. As instruments evolve so is the listening experience. The concept of tools for this session is to perceive
instrument as a discipline in its own right that the artists will explore its open-ended interpretation and exchange knowledge of
tools as sound making with the audience.

SOUND IMAGING SESSIONS

The relationship between image and sound is that of a complex exchange. Images are used to reinforce our emotional response
to sound just as the sound can be used to intensify our understanding of the image. As the relationship between sound and image
has been advanced with technology, but it is still the creative instinct and comprehension of the sound and visual artist in fusing the
two that could progress the relationship further. Whether it is sound that leads the image or the image that commands the sound,
from a point where one controls or let go of the other, the interchanging of both is equally important to the outcome.
