about

《真理,给聆听者的练习》乐谱由一份给音乐演出者的备选方案构成。4部分,各专注于我们听力的一个方面。它为演奏者提供开放的材料:发声行动、静默行动、静止行动、移动行动、阐释行动。所有这些都可以选择、组合、忽略或者扩展。多个练习也可以同时发生。

基本而言,这个作品试图创造一个能在我们习惯的声音空间里挑动变化的表演情境。因此,它将聆听强调为一个持续变化的感知过程,并强制所有聆听者与此变化相关。表演者被要求主动处理,并且——多少是井井有条地——测量、阐释、激励并从表演空间的不同部分的声响特性与环境声中得到提示。

这件作品的公开表演不可事先宣布,在录音时,也只能用手持设备。录音师将成为表演者,平等地探索和记录他/她在其中移动的空间。

the score for ‘truth, exercise for a listener’ comprises a catalogue of options for a musical performer. In four parts each focusing on a different facet of our faculty to listen, it offers open ended material for the performer to deal with; sounding actions, silent actions, still actions, moving actions, interpretative actions. All can be selected, combined, omitted or extended at will. Multiple exercises can happen simultaneously.

In a general sense the piece is an attempt to create a performance situation that instigates changes within and between the sound spaces we inhibit. Accordingly, it highlights listening as a process of continuously shifting perspective and forces such shifts with all listeners involved. Performers are instructed to actively engage with and -somehow methodically- measure, interpret, excite and derive cues from the acoustics and ambience of the different sections of a performance site.

Public performances of the piece can not be announced beforehand and when recorded, only with a handheld device. The recording engineer then becomes a performer, equally inquisitive and documenting the space(s) that he/she moves through.
