「樂如破竹」
「破竹」是破壞竹的原始結構的一種方式;竹上擊樂是一種製造聲音的手段。「破竹」可帶來人對塵世的頓悟; 而擊樂可解放人心深處的情懷。拿起敲棒或柴刀,由竹上方一端往下一揮,試看我們感受到甚麼。「樂如破竹」為一互動音樂裝置,題中「樂」字一語雙關;指「破竹」帶來快樂也帶來音樂。此藝術裝置是要把破竹的狀態混於擊竹之樂聲中,這混淆會牽動我們反思及對此兩動作之理解。我們在問:究竟我們是在破壞一根竹,還是在建構一音調? 敲吧! 這竹正面臨「破與立」的一刻;宛如一所學校,她被奪去教化掃盲的天職,卻肩負起推動文化及藝術之使命。
“Cracking bamboo is joyful and musical”
Cracking a bamboo trunk is a way to deconstruct its natural form; percussing it, to create noise. The cracking is likely to make humans understand their physical world and the percussing is likely to cause an emotional catharsis from the bottom of their heart. Slash downwards from one of its end with a striking stick or a knife and try to see what we perceive.This is an interactive musical installation of which the title is a pun that connotes joy as well as music. This art installation is to mingle the mentality of the splitswith the sound of percussion. This mixture will activate our thoughts and awareness of these two acts. The question we put to ourselves is whether we are deconstructing a bamboo or constructing a musical note.Keep on striking! The bamboo is at the point of deconstruction and construction,which is, as it were, a school that has once been deprived of the duties of education and enlightenment but is now committed to shouldering the promotion of culture and artOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
