Sound - A Mutual Tuning

Chong Li-Chuan (Singapore)

In this talk, composer and sound designer Chong Li-Chuan introduces the concept of acoustic ecology and the different modes of listening that often go unnoticed or unexamined in our everyday lives. Chong has collaborated with practitioners in theatre, dance, visual arts, architecture and spoken word on recent local works such as Cut Kafka!, How Did The Cat Get So Fat? and Lear Is Dead.

Chong will allow audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the artistic expressions explored in SIFA 2019’s programme ST/LL by Shiro Takatani and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Chong discusses key concepts including the oscillation between the quotidian and the sublime, uncertainty and predictability, and the confluence of movement, sound, and image both concrete and abstract.
