shanghai subway

together with MTDM, Junky, Mai Mai

While I stayed in Shanghai I worked together with the artist group company. A group of artists and musicians from Shanghai which organises events in public and private spaces.

One of the events was a performance in the subway of Shanghai. Different artists performed noise music. A music which does not refer to traditional musical structures, but to plurality of all possible sounds. During the performance we spread a booklet which is written around excerpts of the text “the art of noises” by the futurist Luigi Russolo.

For the performance I used a sound recorder and two microphones to create a feedback. The train movement made the microphones swing. This changed the feedback sounds. Sounds moved up and down and merged with the squeaking subway train.
