TNUA’s Center for Art and Technology recently presented “Witness, Listener, and the Involved on the Move” – an event featuring sound art performances and a seminar.
 
The event featured: sound theorist and artist Douglas Barret; professor of sound arts Cathy Lane from University of the Arts London; soundscape artist Viv Corringham; and Taiwan sound artist Hong-Kai Wang.
 
The event was designed and hosted by Prof. Guo Jau-Lan from TNUA’s Department of Fine Arts.
 
Mr. Barrett noted that in 2016 he began a project called “What is the Sound of One Flag Burning?” It was a response to the rising nationalism in the United States and U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to protesters who burned the American flag.
 
The project attempted to study how sounds can be become evidence of illegal activities, he said. 
 
Prof. Lane’s work often makes use of verbal texts, field recordings and documents to explore the nature of sounds. She likened her own work to an investigation of sounds, looking into slices of truth of an incident or the links between culture and sounds.
 
Mrs. Corringham has spent 15 years visiting different countries, talking walks with the local people. While walking, she would make recordings. She would then return to the same place the next day, singing along the way while recalling the memories of the previous walk. The people walking with her would become part of her creative work.
