YANNICK DAUBY

1974年出生於法國,自2007年起,移居台灣也在此工作。

他大約在1996年左右開始對聲響的訓練,研讀 Tape 音樂 (musique concrète in French),探索關於磁帶、類比合成及音響上的滿足。

然而,當他走出戶外後,真正好玩的事情才開始。他從1998年開始田野錄音,在遠離家鄉的旅行中,他捕捉環境中的聲音、車水馬龍的喧囂、動物之間的鳴叫以及不尋常的聲響現象,這些是他最喜歡的素材,有時候會將這些珍貴的聲音資料出版成黑膠膠盤或是做成聲音文件或是音樂作品中的蒙太奇素材。

在舞台上,他利用以錄製好的聲音、模組合成器和電腦來即興,經常與其他的聲音藝術家、現代舞者(2007年開始為臺灣驫舞劇場作配樂)或是視覺藝術家(如與藝術家蔡宛璇的風景創作)一起合作,以透由聲音裝置對音響空間的感察作實驗。他活躍的音樂領域包含了個人創作、表演及黑膠膠盤。且深深地被民族學及自然科學所吸引,他常常在想著進入這些領域與自然學家們合作或是在台灣客家或是原住民村落進行以群落為發起的計畫。在下一個年度的計畫中,包含了更多透過藝術活動、聲音記錄及教學活動來探索台灣。

b.1974 in France - living and working in Taiwan since 2007

His sound practice was initiated around 1996, studying tape music (musique concrète in French) : discovery of the physicality of the magnetic tape, vertigo-inducing analog synthesis and acousmatic pleasures.

However, it's outdoor that things really started. He began working with field recording since 1998, during a travel in a distant country, capturing fragments of environments, urban situations, animal signals and unusual acoustic phenomenas. Those are his favorite materials, sometimes published like they are as phonographies, or providing some montage elements for some audio documentaries or musical compositions.

On stage, he improvises mainly with recorded sounds, modular synthesizer and computer. Regular collaborations with other sound artists, contemporary dance (since 2007, produces soundtracks for Horse Dance Company in Taiwan) or in association with visual artists (such as the creations about landscape with Wan-Shuen Tsai). Experimenting the perception of acoustic spaces with sound installations. His activediscography includes personal compositions, documentations of performances, and selected phonographies.

Fascinated by ethnology and natural sciences, he often wanders into these domains in collaboration withnaturalists or during community-based projects in Taiwan in Hakka or aborigine villages. Plans for the next years include more exploration sessions of the island through artistic activities and sound documentation as well as teaching actions.
