Liquid Architecture and White Fungus present SUBLATE
Liquid Architecture, Australia’s biggest sonic arts organization, is coming to Taiwan to hold a series of events in Taipei, Taichung and Tainan. As part of the tour Liquid Architecture and White Fungus are collaborating to hold the final event SUBLATE at Korner on December 2. The event will feature Taiwanese and Australian performance, live electronics, noise and techno DJs.
Liquid Architecture and White Fungus have also collaborated to produce a new publication to accompany the tour. The publication contains articles about Wang Hong-Kai, Betty Apple, and Acid House. Tickets to SUBLATE will include a free a copy of the publication when purchased from select retailers (details coming soon).
Sublation is a term for describing dialectical tension (to negate as we conserve, to lift up as we destroy, to counter as we attack). Contradiction here makes sense. Can we embrace sound both in its contexts and as phenomena? Is transcendence somehow nearer when we descend into our basest drives - when we submit to the power of affect, and dance?
Jannah Quill is a Sydney and Melbourne based artist whose experimental approach to the uncasing of electrical processes manifests in installation, performance and recorded sound. In her live performances, she sculpts cracked everyday electronics into pulsating, beguiling and menacing fields of static and tone. Her approach to sound-making is heavily influenced by her interest in dance and club music apparatus and the ways in which this can blend with experimental, improvisatory and collaborative music.
Jannah’s music and art practice embraces ordinary digital interfaces and technological machines as materials to generate new experiences reinterpreted from the intended consumer use of the digitally banal. In her hands, solar panels generate audio signal from off-the-shelf lighting products; a laptop’s text-to-speech function becomes vocal samples on thumping techno driven tracks; and game development programs are used to create installations of deconstructed digital imagery.

陳雋然 / CHUN YIN RAINBOW CHAN
陳雋然 Chun Yin Rainbow Chan works across music, performance and installation. Born in Hong Kong and raised in Sydney, Chan is interested in mistranslations, diaspora and the effects of globalisation on modern Chinese society. Her research engages with the authentic and the copy, exploring sites of exchange and desire which complicate Western notions of originality and appropriate consumption. Central to Chan's work is the circulation of knock-off objects, sounds and images in global media. Her work positions the fake as a complex sign that shapes new myths, values and contemporary commodity production.
Tying together her works across installation and pop music is the relationship between nostalgia, migration and identity. She recently released her debut record Spacings (Silo Arts & Records) which was feature album on FBi Radio, Radio Adelaide, RTRFM, and nominated for a SMAC Award (Record of the Year). Under her techno project, Chunyin, Chan released Code Switch EP on UK label, Off Out, in September. Chan has performed extensively including live appearances at Sydney Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art, Gallery of Modern Art, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Museum of Old and New Art, and Iceland Airwaves. Her installations have been exhibited with Firstdraft Gallery, Liquid Architecture, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Longli International New Media Arts Festival, China.
鄉愁、移民、認同感，將她跨足裝置和流行音樂這兩個範疇的創作緊緊串聯。近期發行的首張唱片《之間》（Silo Arts & Records）是FBi 電台、阿得雷德電台、RTRFM社區電台的熱播唱片，並獲提名雪梨音樂藝術文化獎（年度最佳唱片）。她的電音計畫在2016年9月份透過英國唱片公司Off Out發行了單曲《Code Switch》。表演經歷包括在雪梨歌劇院、當代藝術館、現代美術畫廊、新南威爾斯美術館、新舊藝術博物館、冰島電波音樂節演出，裝置作品則曾於Firstdraft畫廊、液態建築、4A當代亞洲藝術中心、中國隆里國際新媒體藝術節展出。
Al Burro（英國倫敦）於 1994 年第一次聽到 Jeff Mills 的Transmission 1 時即對電子樂產生興趣。 受到未來主義式的聲音景觀吸引，回溯到 1995 年他與朋友購入了第一套皮帶傳動轉盤，並從此開始了一段與 Techno 的不解之緣。Al Burro 苦心鑽研工業地下風格音樂，對 Ambient 領域則閒散以待，但此兩者都是他擅長的風格。他堅定地相信一句行內老話：「重點在於情緒而非類型」。你可時常在Korner欣賞他精湛的表演。
Al Burro (London) first got interested in electronica back in 1994 when he first heard Jeff Mills’ Transmission 1. Drawn to the futuristic soundscape, he and a friend bought their first set of belt-driven decks back in 1995 and this began a longstanding affair with techno. The Burro is equally at home toiling in industrial warehouses as he is lazing in ambient fields. A firm believer in variations on a common theme: It's about the mood not the genre. You can usually find the Burro at Korner in Taipei doing what he likes doing.
鄭宜蘋 / BETTY APPLE
鄭宜蘋又名 Betty Apple（生於 1986 年，生活和工作於台北），身兼聲音藝術家、電子樂製作人、DJ，並以現場藝術、聲音藝術、錄像行為為創作主軸。擅長以聲音與身體為書寫工具，創作觀念從自身成長的後殖民世界挖取題材。以寓言式的互文本褻瀆虛幻歷史包袱和虛假的種族與歷史符號，藉此嘗試脫離工業機械文明的控制，解構新世界秩序。
Cheng Yi-Ping aka Betty Apple (b.1986, based in Taipei) is a sound artist, electronic composer and DJ, and her practice is mainly in live art, sound art and video. Using sound and body as her artistic approach, the concept of her works is rooted from the postcolonial surrounding she originally comes from. By desecrating the imaginary historical burden and false symbols of race and history with the fictional intercontextuality, Cheng intends to break the control of industrial civilisation and to deconstruct the order of the new world.
DINO / 廖銘和
Dino，本名廖銘和，居於台北，製作古琴，並做噪音表演。臺灣90年代噪音第二波代表人物，曾為知名團體「夾子」樂隊成員。他的創作標識著九零年代後半期臺北噪音運動在技術上走向純類比電子，在內涵上建立獨立美學之里程碑。Dino 的電子音響來自於極其簡陋的模擬器材，利用線路雜音、靜電或麥克風回饋建立迴圈回路，在無音源的狀況下創造「買空賣空」的「再生音樂」（Recycle Music）。
近年來Dino 參與實驗電影、小劇場現場配樂製作，曾獲臺北電影節最佳音效獎。Dino 對於英倫龐克文化及中國古典文化研究著力甚深，這些影響當可見於其作品之中。
Dino (aka Liao Ming-He) is a guqin (an ancient stringed Chinese musical instrument) maker and noise performer based in Taipei. Once a bassist of the Clippers Band, he is a seminal figure in the second wave of the noise movement in Taiwan during the late-1990s. He uses simple analogue equipment to create electronic sound with no input, which is known as ‘recycle music’, by generating loops from circuitry noise, static, or microphone feedback. In recent years, Dino participates in experimental films and live music production for the theatre. He was awarded Best Sound Effects in Taipei Film Festival (2003). Dino is particularly fond of British punk subculture and traditional Chinese classics, of which the influence can be found from his works.

盧家齊 / LUJIACHI
盧家齊，現為破地獄 Scattered Purgatory 和 LUDU 的團員，曾擔任 Sleaze 湯湯水水吉他手。而在吉他人間界修得正果之後，隨後遁入更純粹的合成器頻率探索領域；一樣從東方的美學出發，並吸收了更多ambient、drone、民族音樂、酸菜搖滾精華。曾於 2016 年在法國廠牌 WV Sorcerer Productions 發行專輯『圓』，2017 年參與英國廠牌 Chinabot 合輯。
Lujiachi is a member of Scattered Purgatory (Guruguru Brain) and LUDU (Lonely God), and he is a former guitarist of Sleaze. While his music practice, once devoted to guitar, has since moved on to synths, Lujiachi's sounds are still rooted in Eastern aesthetics but also combined with ambient, drone, industrial, krautrock, and world music. Lujiachi released an album, Circle, on WV Sorcerer Productions in 2016.
洪梓倪 / TZU NI
Given the meaninglessness of so much work in society, Tzu Ni seeks to create a setting or environment where a listener can enter into a dream-like state, momentarily isolated from the outside world and, in that space, more intensely perceive one’s frame of mind and body. Her practice in spatial and aural installation is an exploration of the reciprocally constructed connections between analogue sound and refracted light.
Berserk，從 2015 年開始為徐嘉駿主導的噪音計畫，已出版過三張專輯 以及一張與日本噪音代表性藝術家 Merzbow（秋田昌美）的合輯。2016 年跟隨台灣實驗音樂獨立廠牌 Kandala Records 赴倫敦聲音藝術重鎮 Cafe Oto 表演，今年則與失聲祭一同前往東京 SuperDeluxe 演出。

王昱 / 一世豐盛 東方藍鷹 / WANG YU
王昱，專注於研究物理科學現象， 以及確認人類與外在物質環境的互動和連結。 他著迷於探索人性的本質特徵， 並以作品表現人類自身對外的極小值和對內的極大值。 目前積極嘗試各種表現形式的創作， 力求將最大的自由空間交還給觀者和作品本身。

His work, then, attempts to express the imbalances in human value systems. Wang Yu's current practice is based on experimentation with different forms of expression in an effort to give a maximal, free space back to the work and its viewers.
