Nuit Blanche Taipei- Moving Track in the White Night


Moving Track in the White Night, the all new cross-over work was a collaboration invited by Nuit Blanche 2018 curator Sean C.S. Hu and smart x sound artist Wu Tsan-Cheng. The work included the fixed spot installation at the main entrance of Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation showing the daily Taipei scenes in a combination of moving images, the car body, and the sound of the city. The hallucinating visual projection embarked the sound journey. What’s more, 12 urban mini cars—smart, became the moving work driven among different Nuit Blanche Taipei venues to experience the activity. After registration, participants took off the journey by experiencing around 15-20 minutes’ car-ride and the sound landscape. The special planned route plus Wu Tsan-Cheng’s edited sound design, GPS operated app developed by IF Plus, and the sound field in smart cars worked as medium. Participants would hear layers of daily life sound alongside the landscape outside of the car, and were woven together as a magical journey across time and space. The day-to-day market scene, conversations between foreign workers, and dialogues among the young, etc. worked as if an augmented reality experience of sound, and made it a one-of-a-kind experience between the reality and virtual reality.

Sound artist Wu Tsan-Cheng has long been working on work Taiwan Sound Map (http://soundandtaiwan.com/soundmap/twmap.html), which tells the story with daily life sound from every city corner. Another young artist Clansie Dao-Yuan Cheng participated in the fixed-spot video and sound editing installation. His works are mostly categorized as experimental sound performance, new media installation, destructive program video, and graphic art.
