about

Kevin Corcoran: shanzhai
Using the Sub Jam video channel (vimeo.com/subjam) as an archive of past Miji concerts, identify a performer you wish to copy for a certain instrument technique or a certain gesture or body movement.
Copy this technique or movement repeatedly until it feels natural for you, no longer belonging only to the performer you first encountered it through but to your own language.

Kevin Corcoran: Boundary Objects
In sociology, a boundary objectis a thing used in different ways by different communities.
Apply this definition to a selection of mundane household items turning them into musical objects acoustic or amplified. Improvise for any duration.
If you have means to amplify with microphones, consider another definition of the boundary object as that creating a physical boundary which interferes with or shapes the ambient sound in your environment. Make field recordings with microphones inserted inside or attached to household objects changing them into listening devices.

凯文·科尔科兰:山寨
查看密集音乐会的过往档案(https://vimeo.com/subjam),找一个你想要模仿 ta 的特定乐器演奏或者特定身体动作的表演者。
重复模仿这个乐器演奏技术或者动作,直到显得自然。让它不只是属于这个表演者,也属于你自己的语言。

凯文·科尔科兰:边界对象
在社会学里,“边界对象”就是在不同的社群里有着不同用法的东西。
把这个定义用在选定的家居用品上,把它们变成音乐上的发声物件,原声或者扩声都行。即兴演奏任意时间长度。
要是你能用话筒扩声,就考虑一下“边界对象”的另一个定义。它会干扰或者塑造你的环境声音。把话筒塞进或者固定在家居用品上,把它们变成聆听工具,用它们来做田野录音。
