PING SHENG WU
Sound-Path
:
Sound-path is a sound performance that uses the personal mobile devices of the audience members as speakers. Trajectories are calculated live to built an inclusive and unpredictable multi-channel soundscape.
:
Ping Sheng Wu is an artist based in Taipei. His primary medium and the center of his creative thinking is sound. His undergrad studies in fine art were focused on sculpture, and he then studied new media art in graduate school. He is now working on a variety of projects, including electro, noise, ambient, rock and roll, motion movie soundtrack, and different types of theatrical productions, while his main passion is live performance and sound installation. He researches how sound expands and extends through the senses, and observes sound, both as a physical property of an environment and as an object of analysis through digital processing. And he continues to re-learn the characteristics of sound as it is naturally or artificially translated and substituted in various forms of media.
:
Ping Sheng has been a regular participant in Digital Art Festival Taipei. He there received the Digital Art Award in 2015 and won the Digital Art Performance Award First Prize as part of the “Render Ghost” production team in 2016. His collaborative works in music and soundtrack are released in China, the US, and Europe. In 2017 he participated in “Transonic” in Barcelona and in “Unconditional Love and Fact”, choreographed by SU Wen-Chi (蘇文琪) and “Electric Indigo”, directed by Lim Giong (林強), both National Theater and Concert Hall (Taipei) productions, as a sound designer. In November of 2018 he completed his art-in-residence in Korea, with work exhibited in an independent gallery in Busan, joined the New Media Art group “noiseKitchen Art Co., Ltd. (噪咖事務所)” as music production supervisor and produced “Sonarest – symphony of water and life” for Discovery Pavilion, 2018 Taichung World Flora Exposition. He is currently artist in residence at the Triangle Arts Association in Brooklyn.

DANIEL NEUMANN
Non-representational Spatial Sound Composition
:
Daniel Neumann will introduce his concept of Non-representational Spatial Sound Composition, which is meant to provide a framework for analyzing and discussing site-specific or site-sensitive spatial sound works. He frames this as distinct from surround sound studio composition. The latter usually attempts to represent a certain studio-made spatiality and aims for spatial transferability into the listening situation/ concert hall through the use of standardized speaker setups. Non-representational spatial sound works on the other hand use idiosyncratic speaker configurations where individual speakers are empirically placed in relationship to the existing architecture. A demonstration-experiment will occur.
:
Daniel Neumann is a sound artist, organizer and audio engineer. In his artistic practice he is working in hybrid installation-performance formats, in which a main focus is how sound interacts with space and how spaces can be shaped by sound. He understands sound as an intersubjective field often enabled and expanded by audio procedures. Curatorially he runs an event series in NYC and Berlin (CT::SWaM) that engages in spatial sound works and focussed listening. He was the acoustic designer of The World Is Sound and works for Oneohtrix Point Never, Diamanda Galás, David Guetta, and Alarm Will Sound.
