在模達的一天，與Mike Cooper邊走 邊聽
Mike Cooper in Around sound art festival 2009/Mike Cooper在《聽在》聲音藝術節2009
Mo Tat is a small village on north-east Lamma Island. The village is composed of three areas: Mo Tat Wan along the beach, Mo Tat Sun Tsuen (Mo Tat New Village) on the hill and Mo Tat in the valley. Soon, Mo Tat is to welcome British artist Mike Cooper.
Mike was invited by soundpocket to come to Hong Kong for Around sound art festival 2009. He performed a live, improvised concert at Tung O beach in the Mo Tat area. This year, Mike comes back for Around 2013. He will then work on his ongoing field recording project: Island as part of The Library’s artist residency in Mo Tat.
As a sound explorer, Mike’s art practice is all encompassing, straddling performance, recording, the art of soundscape, and more. He had visited and made field recordings around the islands of Ubin, Fiji, Hawaii, East Timor, Bali, Penang… in Pacific Ocean and South East Asia.
