Happy Recipe 菜市场和弦
This art piece is a sound interactive installation. Different types of vegetables and fruits are placed according to the positions of musical instruments, sequencers, and bands. Then through the control of the mainboard, 50 tracks are input into different items and signals from sensors that sense the locations that audiences touch are received and the different sound effects are output. Through field sampling, the real shouts for sale of street vendors in Shanghai, Chengdu, and Shenyang are sampled to form an audio source, so that audiences’ action feedback can also be integrated into the creation process. Inclusiveness, popularity, and ubiquity are my special feeling for the vegetable market.
Music is the same.
Different sound effects are mixed in a certain time and space, which cover different sounds, implicit cultures, and modern fashion. Every vegetable market is like a common and special concert where every person and item is the audience and leading character.
Therefore, the author hopes to use new media art to create a new sense of vulgar life by weakening the clear sense of distance
between technology and daily life.
