Prog. notes: Based on the idea of Aeolian harp, a Greek invented musical instrument which creates sounds through wind blowing over strings stretched across a wooden box, I developed a system which generates musical texture through the manipulation of environmental sounds. It consists of a microphone, computer and custom software. The software on computer processes audio signals through twelve audio effects in real time during performance. It is my attempt to rediscover the musical structure in the movements of our city. (The image and sound were recorded at the Hong Kong International Airport on 9 January 2010 by domtng.)
