Lost Communications 失絡之聲

Created by electronic musician, An-Ting, and creative technologist, Ian Gallagher, Lost Communications 失絡之聲 is a live audio-visual performance immersing the audience deeply into the light and darkness of nature.

A fundamental property of the natural world is interaction and communication. Every species in an ecosystem contributes to the harmonious symphony that it is a part of. We chose a long time ago to shut ourselves off from this, slowly at first, but with ever increasing speed, we have closed our hearts. We no longer hear the natural music around us. Lost Communications 失絡之聲 is an exploration of art, nature and technology.

Travelling from the UK, through Mongolia, Sichuan and Hong Kong, Ian and An-Ting have recorded the songs of birds as the musical expression of the environments they found themselves in. What might they tell us if we were able to hear?

Lost Communications 失絡之聲 is co-commissioned by Videotage (Hong Kong) and Treasure Hill Artist Village (Taiwan).
