|Title||I Am Washing My Hands In A Room|
|Description||If we pay attention to the little sounds we hear around us daily, we would be surprised by how it reflected this unprecedented time that we are currently living in. However, it doesn't mean that we could not find beautiful moments in those sounds - if we listen attentively and raise our awareness towards them, we could still explore their interesting sonic potentials, as well as bringing peacefulness to ourselves. I Am Washing My Hands In A Room is an improvised piece of mine, recorded in mid-March, with myself vocalizing the phrase "I Am Washing My Hands In A Room" (homage to Alvin Lucier's piece "I Am Sitting In A Room") and making sounds from soap and water. The piece explores the interrelation between phonetics when the phrase is spoken, and the sounds produced when washing our hands. I hope the piece could trigger all of you to pay more attention to the sonic environment around us, explore the beauty of it, and most importantly, wash your hands!|
