Special Sound Performances
An evening of performances featuring collaborative pieces created during the week of WSD2017 by teams of Sound Designers. Artists to be announced July 3.

Presenter Biographies:

Yenting Hsu is a sound artist who investigates the cultural context of sounds, explores the connection between life, environment and ethnic cultures, and reflects on the relationship between sounds and their surrounding world from an alternative angle. Using field recordings as her primary source material, Hsu creates audio documentaries, soundscapes and sound performances. Her works are characterized by an abundance of narrative qualities. Often forming an intimate relationship with local communities and artistic partners, Hsu likes to explore the inter-reflection between external cultures, environmental sounds and individual/collective memory and emotion. Over the past two years, Hsu’s sound pieces have increasingly explored the psycho-geographical dimensions, examining the profound connection between external soundscapes and inner reflections. Relying on narrative and imagination, Hsu now puts her focus on “sound novels” and continues to probe the interrelation between sounds, daily items and other mediums. She also works extensively with dance theaters as a sound designer.
Sun Hee Kil is a New York based sound designer/engineer from South Korea who works internationally since 2001.Her work includes from classical to contemporary, traditional to creative, and western to eastern recordings, plays, musicals, dance, operas, and video mapping, etc. She wants to help aural images of any storytelling and beautiful human lives.
Chi Po-Hao is a musician and sound artist from Taipei. He holds a Master of Music Degree from Goldsmiths College, University of London and Bachelors Degree in Economics from National Taiwan University. His primary medium is sound, with experiences in bands and event organizing. His works are principally involving but not limited to live electronic, electroacoustic composition and installation. He usually applies self-made tools and found objects that are based on electronic devices, everyday materials, and junk, as well as customized tools developed in Max/MSP in performances. His ongoing works are mainly concerned about the sensing of everyday rhythms when extending the interactions among perception, individual and environment;  investigating how people hear, interpret and represent the sound surrounding us;  and how sounds intervene with the space. He has done residencies at V2_Institute of Unstable Media in Rotterdam (2014), Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris (2015-16), Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong,(2016), and Laboral Centro de Arte in Gijon and  has toured Taipei, London, Wales, Manchester, Paris, Rotterdam, Beijing, Yinchuan, Lanzhou, Shenzhen and Macau, Hong Kong.
