There is one thing I definitely don’t love : speaking in front of audience. Oral language, especially since I am not very good with English and really bad with Mandarin, is not my favorite medium, I highly prefer sharing fixed sounds rather than my own words.
But still, it is another type of access to audience to understand the aims and processes of sound practice or artworks related to places, ecology and communities.
Below is the list of the events that occurred in the second half of the year 2016.
Thanks to all the organizers and participants.

Two events in Matsu islands 馬祖列島. It has been the first time I could see the landscape of China from the islands of Taiwan. I have to note that we stayed in the most incredible bookshop/coffee shop I ever visited the Thornbird Coffee shop 刺鳥咖啡書店, an amazingly cozy place installed in a military fort…
Two sessions organized by the community of Niujiao 牛角 : a screening of our three films (cf. the event at TheCube above) and a listening session devoted to the sounds of the marine environment, Oct. 10 and 11 2016.
ps : please, don’t invite me to make lectures, let’s rather do a sound recording project together, please…
pps : no photo of me talking, no photo of audience, just a beautiful landscape from Thornbird Coffee shop 刺鳥咖啡書店.
