The Library calls for “Sound Collectors”
聲音圖書館「採聲人」大募集

2656-021

Every day, our ears are drawn to the hustle of footsteps, vehicles, traffic signals,
public announcements, hawkers calls, drones of air conditioners, birds calls, leafs in the wind…
Sounds of countless frequencies and textures compound the sonic environment of our city.
Vanishing in time, sounds are evanescent;
but they also register the trajectories of the city’s beings.

Are you an active listener?
Are you ready to share your listening experience with others?
Can we borrow your ears?

Become a Sound Collector of The Library by soundpocket. Learn about the art of recording from professional sound designers and artists. Share your ideas of listening and make them part of the permanent collection of the public library of sounds.

How to become a Sound Collector of The Library?
If you love exploring, and you listen well, we would like to meet you!
NO professional background in working with sound is required.
All Sound Collectors will attend 3 sessions of Sound Collecting Workshop for free. The workshops cover such topics as the culture of listening in contemporary society, theories and practices of listening with microphones and headphones, and the art of recording by artists. Upon completion of the workshop, Sound Collectors will become members of The Library community and start collecting sounds and stories together.

每天我們的耳朵被各種聲音充滿。
腳步聲、汽車聲、交通燈響個不停、公共廣播重覆又重覆、小販叫賣、冷氣機的摩打聲、
小鳥吱吱叫、微風拍打葉子、盂蘭勝會的鬼哭神號、還有……
不同的頻率振動交匯成城市獨特的聲境和節奏,卻隨時間漸漸消逝。
聲音,是轉瞬即逝的、彌足珍貴的時代印記。

你喜歡聆聽嗎?願意分享自己所聽?那不要猶豫,把你的耳朵借給我們。

成為聲音圖書館的「採聲人」,可免費參與由專業人士主持的《喚你隻耳》工作坊;而你所收集的聲音,將有機會成為這個平等、自由的網上館藏,以述說你和這個城市的段段故事。
