Born in Yulin in 1973, Tsan-Cheng Wu loves all types of pop and experimental music. In college, he and friends hosted the radio show “TNT on Art” on SuperFM 98.5. The sound effect in Godard’s movies made him realize the important role sound has played in image. Through the subtle lead of sound and image as well as auditory and tactile senses, he participated in Co 6 Taiwan Avant-Grade Document in 2006, and exhibited his first sound installation Nightingale. Since then, he has been experimenting on the relationship between the senses of vision and hearing.
“Do we really know the place we inhabit? What is the soundscape of Taiwan?” These are the questions Wu has been consistently exploring in his creative work. In this exhibition, Wu continues his Taiwan SoundMap Project and extends it to Taitung, hoping to guide people to carefully listen to the “sounds” and the possibilities along the South-Link Line and immerse themselves in an interesting journey of discovery. Through his work, we are re-connected to our reality through the sense of hearing, and are able to understand more about the place we live in, read people’s activities and observe their culture.
