Moving Sound Forest
- Fujui Wang
Solo Exhibition





Moving Sound Forest

After completing the work "Sound Forest Under the Cloud", the new one "Moving Sound Forest" further presents the flowing sounds and emphasizing the listening experience in a specific space. There are about 1,000 "Sound Dots" in the "Moving Sound Forest" (four times as many as in the "Sound Forest Under the Cloud"), each "Sound Dots" can be controlled independently to show different linear geometric patterns collaboratively, which creates the fluidity of sound. The audience not only sees the numerous astral light dots in the dark, but is also covered by the surrounding audio frequency when he/she hears the flowing sounds. This installment shows countless light stars in dotted rhythm, and the listener feels like rambling and meditating in a deep forest. The sounds spread out at random through the vibration in the air, and each "Sound Dots" is a shining star, endlessly whispering and talking with the audience.

Sound State
- Fujui Wang
Solo Exhibition







Sound State

I imagine the sound that changes over time as the clouds drifting in the sky, merging and separating, appearing and disappearing. It shows hardly concrete meanings. However, I enjoy the whole process of imagination.

Sound is invisible. It is not a medium but a vibration through a medium such as air or water. However, if we regard sound as a medium, we can therefore record, transmit, transform, and present it in different forms and ways. Recorded sound is detached from the place where it was produced. The sound per se is then transformed into a sound object through the electrical currents and the set of speakers. In addition, the sound is combined with other media in an interdisciplinary manner.

As a medium, whether self-developed, catalytic, or heterogeneously blended, sound evolves with the changes of time and space. A subject or an object, whatever sound may be, the artist tries to find the possibilities for sound from its evolution. The State of Sound seeks to present the state of a series of sound experiments ranging from the automatic sound devices to the derivative electronic instruments. The exhibition also explores the possibility for images through audio frequency, the sound space created by light and physical vibration, and the heterogeneity between auditory and visual senses. Adopting an intuitive, open-minded attitude, the artist tries to explore unknown possibilities for sound with his unconventional ideas.


Sound Watch

In Sound Watch, the shape of an eye is reminiscent of the imagery of peeping. The “eye” is in fact an object that creates sound. The object appears tiny in the exhibition room. However, the sound it creates surprisingly resounds throughout the room. The sound represents the feedback generated by the approach of the microphone to the speaker. The superimposition of the received and enlarged sound makes immense resonance. Meanwhile, the continuously changing volume of the sound resembles the buzzing of insects.



Seeing Sound

The audio signals are connected to the image input port of the television. The image on the screen shows various abstract linear patterns due to the vibration of audio frequency. Previously, creators tended to apply pre-set sound sequences to create synchronous sound and images. In Seeing Sound, the artist tries to create various possibilities for images through frequency variation or mixing. Accordingly, it is a visual installation that produces images with inaudible sound.





Noise Machine

Noise Machine is a project consists of a series of home-made electronic instruments, circuit bending, hardware hackers, and analog errors. The installation combines a sequence generator with an audio oscillator under the influence of circuit bending. The uncertain electronic frequencies and the changing rhythms interfere with each other. Energy is therefore liberated from the electronic sound created by primitive technology when the flow of energy is not completely controllable.





Noise Tube

Noise Tube is a mechanical noise improvisation in which the machine generates and emancipates itself through false computing. Due to the disturbance of electrical noise, the vibrating chip in the tube continuously creates noise of different frequencies. Meanwhile, the random fluctuation in electrical signals also disturbs the function of the chip. The situation implies an endless self-disturbance of the machine, which evolves toward perpetual disorder. The randomness is caused by the uncontrolled state of electrical noise rather than digital computing.

The fluctuation and vibration of energy, electrical noise, and audio frequencies continuously resonate, reverberate, and radiate in the tube. The power is increasing but remains encapsulated in the tube, which leads to the implosion and variation of sound. It conveys an overwhelming and closed message that triggers our innermost sensory perception.





Sound Light

The string-like rays of light puncture the darkness of the exhibition room. The viewers’ bodies shuttle between the giant resonance box and pluck the strings of light. The interaction among human bodies, light, and metal springs creates sound that echoes through the room. The gentle motion of human bodies can generate unexpectedly immense resonance.

Sound Installation





Noise Tube

Noise Tube is an improvised performance of machine noise. Self-generate and liberation from the wrong operation, the glass tube vibrate chip constant interference by the current noise. Continuously emitted different audio noise, while current is disturbed computing chip itself, such as the machine without disturbing the endless self-continued no rules and non-stop evolution. This is not a random bit computing but by analog signal currents noise control.

Hyper Transmission
- Fujui Wang
Solo Exhibition





Parallel Waves
Ultrasonic Speakers, Plexiglas, Power Motor, Customized Electronic Devices
2013


In the city, there are all kinds of audible and inaudible, palpable and impalpable sounds, which influence every moment of our daily life.This installation reveals the soundscapes of electromagnetic radiation formed by all kinds of noises in cities. The artist collected ultrasounds of electromagnetic radiation from Taipei, Tokyo, Berlin, New York, etc., and transformed the oscillating sound pressure waves with a new frequency within human hearing range through the Parametric Speaker System. These ultrasounds are transmitted in the room, just like the electromagnetic radiation and light being emitted in all directions.


Murmurs
Magnetic Buzzer, Glass Funnel, Customized Electronic Devices
2013


In a daily urban environment, all kinds of alarm sounds with varied frequencies and volumes are repeatedly broadcasted and heard. These may be taken as gentle reminder of kindness or warning message for danger. They come in forms of signals, alarms, or sounds of operating machines. When these sounds are alienated from the noise of the city environment and transmitted through the installation, the sounds of the mechanic operation seem to produce a new species of technology, and we see the evolutionary transformation of the city through the murmurs of the creature.

Quiet Noise

Solo Exhibition





Quiet Noise

Fujui Wang's Solo Exhibition and Sound Art Project

"Quiet Noise", a solo exhibition by the pioneer of sound arts, Fujui Wang. Quiet Noise is in an existent but opaque state, a form of exploration of the sporadic connections between the urban sounds and the space. 2 sound installations and 6 prints will be shown in the space.

The discoveries regarding the using of electricity precipitated the Second Industrial Revolution. Electricity ran through cities like blood in the veins in human bodies, converting dashing, invisible electromagnetic waves into sounds through coils and shaping electromagnetic soundscapes of the cities. There is an interactive installation in the main exhibition space which deconstructed the recorded electromagnetic soundscape. Audiences need to hold a special instrument and walk into the electrified aluminum frames hung from the ceiling, a metaphor of buildings in the city, in order to hear the electromagnetic soundscapes Fujui Wang had recorded.

In the other installation, audiences need to stand in between a custom made transparent speakers in order to listen the sounds Fujui had recorded in the MRT cars of the same line for 100 days: Continuous, boisterous, blurry, repetitious, mechanical sounds which we seem to hear infinite sounds without really hearing anything. Form the audio state of a certain urban space, noisy as it might be, it is also tranquil.
