Presented by LCSD, produced by CMHK, an audio-visual imagination of cosmic currents: Many Visions of Many Cosmos – Visions de l’amen. The performance was divided into 2 parts:

The first part of the performance focused on Visions de l’amen, performed by the piano duo Tattoo. Tattoo is comprised of local pianist Linda Yim and American pianist Thomas Rosenkranz, who was a student of Messiaen’s second wife Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen while Messiaen is the composer of Visions de l’amen. The piano duo demonstrates the Catholic perspective towards things on earth and the universe. Messiaen’s instrumental epic will be accompanied by a re-edit of Hong Kong filmmaker Rita Hui’s award-winning feature, Keening Woman, a visual essay on Taoist beliefs of the underworld. It offers a contrast to the Catholic world depicted by two pianos. The core concept of the production – the many visions of many cosmos – is highlighted through the juxtaposition of Catholic cosmology and Taoist underworld.

The second part of the performance is an audio-visual performance ‘new eyes – for (single) player’. Through-out the work, a generative light sculpture is manipulated through a series of limited performer interventions with two projectors. The piece seeks to subvert the standard relationship between player and instrument by creating consequence and complication for every action. These parameters are displayed for the audience as the performer attempts to shape the light and sound, while confronting a shifting interface and increasing instability.


演出第一部分以鋼琴二重奏樂團「他倆」演奏的《阿門之幻想》為中心,體現出天主教對萬物及宇宙的觀點。「他倆」由香港與美國的鋼琴家 ─ 嚴翠珠與湯馬斯.羅森克朗茲組成,後者為《阿門之幻想》作者、法國作曲家梅湘的第二任妻子葉鳳.羅里奧特之門生。梅湘的音樂史詩作品將配以香港電影創作人許雅舒的獲獎長片《哭喪女》重新剪輯版本,電影以影像描寫道教信仰中的冥界,並與雙鋼琴描繪的天主教世界形成對比,從而帶出作品的核心理念:萬千宇宙中的不同世界觀。

第二部分會呈現作曲家蕭逸南的最新多媒體作品《新的眼睛 ─ 單人用》,表演者通過兩部投影機,以一系列有限的介入操作一個自生光雕。作品希望透過為每個動作製造後果和複雜性來顛覆表演者與工具之間的標準關係。表演者一方面嘗試為光線與聲音塑形,另一方面亦須面對不斷轉變的介面和越來越多的不穩定性,並在過程中把這些參數呈現於觀眾眼前。
