Yamaoka Yasuhiro - 30 seconds conceptual moments (2001)



Yamaoka Yasuhiro 30 seconds conceptual moments

these sound files were made for Himekuri Calendar: a daily exhibition on the web by the artists who joined through the internet. my 30sec. c. m. is all set in the same duration of 30 seconds like a commercial video; each sound has its conceptualized background. contributing artists were asked that they should make their work under a monthly given theme.



01. indigo tones

theme: ai. I took ai for ai-iro (indigo). the noise spectrum is classified into colors, similar to the light wave spectrum; lower is red, higher is blue. based on this, Indigo Tones are made from the sound around indigo.



02. treasure search

theme: takaramono. means treasure. I searched the web for treasure, like pirates go on a treasure hunt. text data I found was edited as a poem, then transformed into background sound.



03. Thai foo

theme: tai hoo. uses rhythm patterns which are popular in Thailand country pop music.



04. surf on Jane

theme: tai hoo. it reads as typhoon, too. each typhoon, called by a female name, makes a bigger wave. it's a big try for a surfer but will also swallow him up.



05. cut, plug

theme: cut. sometimes, a spoken word in broadcasting is cut away if it's considered dirty or socially unacceptable. the word goes into silence, or a beep sound. sometimes, I hear music in it.



06. smile s.e.t.i.

theme: uchoo. the space. sine wave frequency curves draw a smile for ET.



07. sonic zoom

theme: zoom. zooming the sound in strength and length.



08. Hitomi my love

theme: hitomi. a lonely man sings a story about a girl: Hitomi!



09. dolphin party

theme: iruka. means dolphin. using the simulated sound which dolphin will make.



10. kill that bug

theme: mushi. means bug. the bad electric contact makes a noisy bug.



11. urban cricket

theme: mushi. when travelling to Seoul, Korea, I heard a strange sound of crickets. they were alarm clocks that a man was selling along the road.



12. technocut

theme: techno. a haircut with no sideburns is called as techno cut in Japan.



13. the end of groove

theme: groove. simulated sound of an analogue disk player playing at the end of the groove.



14. e-massage

theme: massage. put stereo speakers onto your shoulder, then play "e-massage" with maximum volume. is it cure? I do not guarantee you or your speakers, if you try this.



15. prayers echo

theme: inori. means praying. a mixture of chants from three different religions.



16. the last aphorist

theme: choh. means ultra. an ultra high-speed full-length version of Also sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss.
