Outing: wandering and listening
耳朵外展計劃:漫步與聆聽分享

Event Review : “Outing: wandering and listening” @Hung Lung Hang, Sheung Shui
活動回顧:「耳朵外展計劃:漫步與聆聽分享」@上水恐龍坑

On the afternoon of Feb 18, it was a beautiful sunny day. After we all gathered at the bus terminal in the bustling town we took a bus which brought us to the area adjacent to the border between Hong Kong and China. As the passengers got off the bus and when there were fewer passengers, the bus engine sound became louder and louder. We got off at Sandy Ridge bus stop on Man Kam To Road. There was an open ground. We got prepared and started our journey walking up the mountain. When we walked through the village of Sha Ling, there were birds humming, insects buzzing, dogs barking, wind whistling and people chatting. Different sounds were colliding and reverberating through the houses along the pathway, and we could feel the harmony of the echoes.

The village pathway jointed a road with heavy traffic. There were fallen leaves, rubbles and all kinds of junk items along the way towards the mountain. As we were getting closer to Hung Lung Hang, the sounds became more extensive, as if there was water evaporating from a bottle, crossing the rim and diffusing into the air. We sat on a burnt land with green shoots sprouting up, listened to the sounds coming from the valley, looked at the scenery beyond the border of Hong Kong, shared with each other our listening experience and feelings during the walk and the sounds and texts we collected during “Open call for submissions: imagining boundaries”. After that, we returned to the starting point of the journey. There were sounds with different textures in the surrounding along the way down the slope.

二月十八日,一個風和日麗的下午,聲音圖書館及一眾參加者於繁囂的市鎮車站集合後,便坐上一台往香港與中國之間的邊界之地駛去的巴士。隨著乘客陸續下車,引擎的聲音變得愈來愈響亮。下車後,大家在文錦渡路沙嶺巴士站附近一處平坦的空地準備行裝,向著位於山上的目的地走去。鳥鳴聲、蟲叫聲、犬吠聲、風聲、人聲,當大家走過位於沙嶺的村落時,不同的聲音在房屋之間的通道碰撞及迴盪,同時又令人感到一片溫柔。

經過村落後,我們走在大型車輛及私家車疾走的馬路旁,踏著地下的落葉、碎石及雜物,直到山上。當我們愈接近恐龍坑,聲音逐漸開闊,就好像水從瓶中慢慢蒸發,越過瓶口散發在大氣之中。大家坐在一片剛長出綠芽的焦地上,聽著山谷傳來的聲音,看著香港邊界以外的景色,分享漫步途中的感受及聆聽經驗,以及於「公開徵集:邊界想像」收集到的聲音及文字。說說聽聽後,大家邊走邊被不同質地的聲音圍繞,回到旅程的起點。
