In this performance, Winston will try to manipulate organic sound (human voice) in the digital realm through live coding (creating computer programmes that generate sound in live). The vocal sounds will be modified into or substituted by twisting, harsh, and sometimes brutal noises, just like how our voices are treated in the system we are living in.


Tsun Winston Yeung
Tsun Winston Yeung is a computer musician and laptop music improvisor. Graduated from the University of Birmingham with a PhD in Musical Composition, his outputs mainly explore around the topics of live coding, data sonification, sensor-based performance and multi-channel audio. His recent research investigates computer music performance with the use of data from the human body. The result of his works comprises a variety of genres including acousmatic composition, live electronics performances, as well as installations. His works have been presented and performed in various events around the globe, including New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME), International Computer Music Conference (ICMC), International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC), BEAST FEaST, and various Algorave events.

Theoretically, the sound is pictured as a figure in our brain that associates with the influence of visual and stereotype impressions. In our daily life, we often hold a prejudiced image of sound towards every object. But, how if the object is unified and turns into a blank? How will the transformation of the visual element affect our perception of sound? In this sound experiment, we would like to break and rebuild the relationship between sound and visuals. All the sound objects used in the performance are painted with a white coating. Through sound manipulation and with the aid of interactive visual programming, we redefine the interrelationships between sounds and visuals.
