False Securities

Photography by Amos Wong

Live sound performance by Evan Tan & Zul Mahmod

Experience binaural field recordings and digitally processed sounds in a ‘headphone only’ environment.

Any expression within silence evolves as characteristics of an infinity of all chances of sound. Elements of nature at their most fundamental level of pulsing energy.

In our daily lives, we need to focus on our immediate surroundings. As a result, we instinctively filter out background sounds or ‘noise’ that we do not need for information. This has deprived us of receiving certain 'data'. Data of sounds that we have either abandon or are not aware of. Data waiting to be discovered, investigated and understood. Sounds that connect us to the world that we live in that evokes emotions in our sub-consciousness.

In this series of 5 performances entitled ‘False Securities’, we attempt to create evocative and involving listening to confront or remind the listener of this loss of data. The performances will consist of binaural field recordings and digitally processed sounds in a ‘headphone only’ environment. Binaural recordings make use of microphones placed in the ears. To an extent, it reproduces the effect of hearing sounds in a person, given the 360° nature of how human ears pick up nuance in the sound waves. These recordings are only effective using headphones.
Through deep listening, the audience interacts by perceiving these sounds as to where they originate from as they discover and experience new places. To counteract with these binaural recordings of nature and surrounding environment as reality in sound, electronically processed "unheard" sounds will be interjected to create a juxtaposing experience to deviate, distract and provoke an intuitive reaction to the soundspace to create a sublime auditory experience.

Headphones will NOT be provided for the performances. Those that are interested to attend, please bring your own headphones. We do not recommend using earphones.
