說話與歌唱的練習
SINGING AND SPEAKING EXERCISES

蔡宛璇/澎科萌
Wan-Shuen Tsai / Lysianassa Dauby

蔡宛璇陪著8歲的女兒澎科萌一起認識白色恐怖時期的歷史,一起聆聽過去政治受難者傳唱的歌謠。科萌挑選她比較有感覺的歌謠,並嘗試自己唱出來,包含高一生作詞作曲的《長春花》、印地安詩歌《千風之歌》、李凱南獄中遺作《磨不斷的腳鍊》等歌曲。透過孩童質樸的嗓音,歌聲輕輕迴盪在曾經最令人不寒而慄的封閉型監獄綠洲山莊,在高聳的厚牆間,留下餘音。音樂表現出來的情感,可以打破文化的藩籬,展現高度的共通性;同時,音樂本身不具空間性,是最接近概念的一種藝術形式,因此,最具有自由的潛質。幾位分別就讀於綠島國小和公館國小的綠島孩子,嘗試講述他們在島上的生活。從他們分享的片段,我們瞥見島嶼今日的兩面性:對其中一些孩子,海洋呈現為絕對的母土環境,以及普遍來說,島嶼觀光化後的家庭經濟模式對孩子所帶來的影響。藝術家好奇島嶼孩子的獨特視角…,如果說對自由的思索與追求是個體生命和環境互動下所綻放出最珍貴的姿態之一,那麼下一代如何與家庭和他所在的土地產生連結,則是孕育這一切的最初土壤。

練習說話,從那些,最微不足道日常。練習歌唱,在那些,音符流動間回望。

不要停下重新認識過去,不要害怕去更新,自由的可能路徑。透過一遍遍練習,一次次真實的表述,我們才能一步步靠近,生命綻放的樣子。

In this project, Wan-Shuen Tsai joined her eight-year-old daughter, Lysianassa Dauby, in learning about the history of the White Terror and listening to the songs sung by former political victims. Lysianassa picked and learned to sing the songs that she had feeling for, including "Rose Pericuinkle" written and composed by Uyongu Yatauyungana, "A Thousand Winds" adapted from a Native American poem, and "Unbreakable Legcuffs" written and composed by Li Kai-nan in his final days in the prison. The voice of the child's plain simple singing echoed softly in the once spine-chilling closed prison "Oasis Villa", leaving the songs reverberating between the towering thick walls. The emotions expressed in music can break cultural barriers and show a high degree of commonality. In addition, music itself does not occupy space. It is the art form that is the closest to the concept, and thus potentially the most free.

A number of local children from Green Island and Gong Guang Elementary Schools described their life on the Green Island. From what they shared appear the two faces of the Island today: for some of them, the ocean is their absolute motherland environment, while, in general, the family economic mode in a growing local tourist sector strongly impacts the children. The artist is curious about the unique perspective of the islander children... If the thinking and the pursuit of freedom is one of the most precious movements in the interaction between an individual's life and the environment, then how the next generation connects with the family and local land must be the first nurturing soil.

At first, the practice of speaking, based on the simplest elements of daily life.

The practice of singing, by looking back at the flow of notes.


Don't stop and find out more about the past again. Don't be afraid of taking a fresh possible path leading to freedom.

We would not be able to get closer to the blossom of life without repeated practices and faithful narratives.
