Jin Sangtae 秦相太

*This is a playlist of recordings from Jin Sangtae’s project ‘Year’
updated daily during the 2018 Bangkok Biennial (July 1 to September 31).

1. record 1 minute with your recorder. (in my case, usually, I record with my mobile)

2. upload that file recording to SoundCloud (that will upload on iTunes podcast at the same time)

3. do it again everyday.

It is difficult to find special moments in everyday life. Some days feel ordinary and no different from yesterday; while other days may feel more special. Over time, I have been doing a 1-minute recording every day; I have done this over and over again since October 2015. With this work, I might be changing my aspect of sound and way of listening, or I might be wasting my time. Anyway, I believe that I can make my own 'elements' about listening and some variations in sense. it seems like I am layering drawings overlapped onto a bunch of useless XY graphs. I'm walking where I call 'orbit.'

1. 錄製一分鐘的聲音(我通常採用手機錄音)

2. 上傳音檔至SoundCloud(同時上傳至iTunes podcast)

3. 每天重複以上兩步驟



* 以上播放清單選錄秦相太的「年」,2018年曼谷雙年展期間的錄音(七月一日至九月三十日),將每日同步更新。


Jin Sangtae

Born in 1975, Seoul Korea, Jin Sangtae performs music with non-musical objects collected through his experience. The objects are projected into instruments, and then re-organising them to specific spaces. He has been playing with hard drives and several materials that can be connected as main instruments, and he also plays laptops, radios, car horns and electronics. Jin has been posting his composition ‘Year‘ with mobile phone everyday since 2015 on the web. As an organiser, he has founded a performance space for improvised music in Seoul called ‘dotolim,‘ which has been organising ‘dotolim concert series’ since 2008, as well as a festival under the name ‘dotolimpic‘ in 2012, 2013 and 2017.
