Sonic Anchor #28


Date & Time:
09/07/2016  7:30 pm Start


To kick off the Second Coming series, composer-sound artist Lam Lai will conduct an experiment in outdoor live looping, paying homage to Lucier’s tape-loop classic ‘I am sitting in a room’.  Since her last Sonic Anchor appearance, Lam Lai had spent time honing her craft in Netherlands – we can’t wait to see her transformation.
 
The voluminous vibration of a solo vibraphone will fill the courtyard of the Comix Home Base.  Four strategically positioned microphones pick up four distinct sound images, which are then played back into the courtyard through loudspeakers.  The playback will then be captured by the four microphones again, in a multi-channel feedback loop.  This process repeats itself several times, with each generation of re-recording incorporating more of the physical structure’s acoustical properties.
 
The Second Coming is a mini-series within Sonic Anchor.  In Second Coming, we reconnect with artists who we’d already worked with in previous editions of Sonic Anchor, and provide them with a modest level of support with which to create site-specific works that are conceived specifically for the Comix Home Base.  Taken outside of the confines and comforts of the performance space, artists respond to the site’s history, its neighborhood, and the physical structure’s acoustical properties.

Lam Lai was born in Hong Kong.  She studied music composition at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Art with Law Wing-fai and Clarence Mak, and later in the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague with Martijn Padding and Yannis Kyriakides.  Lam’s compositions, including orchestral, ensemble, electronic and interdisciplinary works, are performed around the globe.  She focuses on combining conventional performance practices and creates new hybrids of media, exploring sound experiences in music and the communication to the listener.  Lam has worked with groups in Germany, Netherlands, Norway, United States, etc.  Her works were performed in international music and art festivals in Finland, France, Hong Kong, Netherlands, South Korea and USA.
