Documentation of whole “real time” performance between 3 platforms

The show acts as a laboratory gathered by sets of sounds, distributed across different social platforms. Under the premise of physical prefabrication, real-time superposition of similar ‘digital polyphony‘ with reduced intervention is realized. To produce a final work through the delay generated on-line, the loss of transcoding, and overwriting. Explore what is lost and what is gained from the ‘real time’ ideality. With binary, hexadecimal and MIDI protocols etc as the fundamental law of signal conversion algorithms, what ‘Real Time’ is? Reality, does the ‘real’ have a reference substance? Is the mechanism of communication just plain distortion, reproduction, recombination? (Hao Long/07/2020)

This is a ‘laboratory’ project , in which the presentation mode of sound in the digital world and implied relations were explored through the performance itself. The performer no longer created the sound in the project, but became a link of the sound set, and the character that was acted presented the flowing, covering and participating processes of the sound.
