Field recordings, oral histories, and musical compositions are among the many tools sound artists use to reflect collective memories and emotions. However, in this time when the ability to transmit ideas and stories relies increasingly on digitally shareable formats, the use of sound as an archival tool to document and disseminate cultural histories has become increasingly vital to many sound art practices.
On 3 November 2021 (NYC)/4 November 2021 (HK/Taipei), artists Elaine W. HO and Yenting HSU will be sharing examples of their recent work with sound, which ranges from site specific installations to online radio broadcasts. After these introductions to their individual practice, Hsu and Ho will come together for a conversation on how audio recording can preserve specific cultural contexts and at the same time be employed as a means of chronicling singular personal narratives.
