“A ‘sound keeper’ is someone who puts sound under safe keeping, and in Chinese, the character for “keeping” (sau2)  puns with the character for ‘seeking’, ‘hunting’, or ‘collecting’ (sau2). In this project, we try to find out how sound keepers and sound seekers relate themselves to sound with materials in The Library by soundpocket.

This project categorizes sounds into ‘sound wave’, ‘music’ and ‘language’. ‘Sound wave’ refers to sound that is represented by the language of physics; it is without emotions and subjective meaning, like a Mathematical formula. ‘Music’ or simply sound is sound without the content of language, but it can influence human emotions, like instrumental music and sighs. ‘Language’ is communication through sound; it has the most complicated structure of sound among the three. It not only carries meaning, but it is also a system of thinking.

We take two opposite extremes for each category as two gravitational poles – “not listen<>listen”, “unpleasant to listen<>pleasant to listen”, “do not understand<>understand”. We look for someone of each extreme in the way they deal with sound in daily life. These are our Sound Keepers. From a hearing-impaired person, a Zen master, a rocker, an air conditioning technician, an insurance agent to a hypnotherapist etc., they will participate in a series of experiments for The Library.”

– Pak Sheung-chuen


On 21st January, Pak comes into conversation with Chow Yiu-fai and Solomon Yu Tik-man, also guest curators of Guest Curation Project by The Library by soundpocket. The conversation will be live-streamed and broadcasted*. A phone-in session will also be featured, during which the public, after listening to and browsing the Online Exhibition, are free to leave messages at the Facebook event page of “The Library by soundpocket” or call the curators directly to interact with them.

* The link and details of the Late Night Live-streaming Session will be announced on our official website and Facebook page of “The Library by soundpocket”.      

「守音人」是把聲音守住的人,其同音字「搜音人」是指搜集聲音的人,在這個項目我們嘗試通過聲音圖書館來找出「他們」和聲音的關係。我們把聲音拆分成三部份:聲波/音樂/語言。「聲波」只從物理角度去理解聲音,完全抽離感情和主觀的意思,像一條數學公式;「音樂」或純聲音是沒有語言內容的聲音,但能影響人的情緒,如純音樂和嘆息;「語言」通過聲音來溝通,是聲音的最複雜結構,它本身除了是意思的載體,也是一種思考系統。我們在每一個範圍各找兩個極端,作為引力:「聽不見<>聽見」/「不好聽<>好聽」/「不明白<>明白」。我們為每個「極端」尋找一名化身,他們在日常處境中從事和聲音有關職業的人,他們就是「守音人」。由聽障人士、禪師、搖滾樂手、冷氣機技工、保險經紀到催眠師等等,他們會為聲音圖書館做一系列聆聽的實驗。

– 白雙全

於1月21日當晚,白雙全將會連同聲音圖書館客席策展計劃的另外兩位策展人 – 周耀輝及余廸文,與公衆來一次深宵網上直播節目*。届時白雙全除了會談及《守音人》,三位客席策展人更會互相分享其創作經驗。節目更設烽煙時段,歡迎公衆在聆聽及閲覽網上展覽後在聲音圖書館( “The Library by soundpocket” )Facebook活動專頁留言或打電話,即時與策展人交流對談。

* 深宵網上直播節目的連結及詳情將於聲音圖書館Facebook專頁網站公佈。
