Illness² (病²): for multi-channel fixed media (2021)  

binaural version optimized for headphones / 雙耳聲道版本,建議使用耳機聆聽
commissioned by Taiwan Sound Lab (C-LAB 臺灣聲響實驗室)

Program Note:

Illness² is inspired by “hypochondriasis” and “excessive dreaming,” two syndromes caused by overperception due to neurological disorder. Through distorted electronics and the ambisonic system, this piece builds up the scenarios of “hypochondria” and “dreaminess,” hoping to offer the audience a more direct and intense listening experience in the immersive space and to lead them into the inner world of the sufferers by associating their own feelings with the music.

Illness² is specifically composed and designed for the 49.4-channel immersive stereo space at C-LAB Taiwan Sound Lab.

樂曲解說:

〈病²〉靈感來自「慮病症」與「多夢症」兩種因神經失調而過量感知的病徵。作品運用扭曲變形的電聲與多聲道環繞系統,揣摩患者的感知狀態,將「慮病」與「多夢」兩種情境交錯堆疊,希望藉由沈浸式音場,帶給聽眾更直接、強烈的聽覺體驗,引領聽眾透過音樂與情緒間的連結與自身想像,進入患者的內心世界。

〈病²〉係特別為 C-LAB 臺灣聲響實驗室49.4聲道立體聲場空間設計的作品。
