Artist︱ Dawang Yingfan Huang
Living in the oppressive and erupting 1990s, in which stock market plunges seriously, Dawang Yingfan Huang chooses to stay in the room, taking recording sound as his own way of self-healing. He acts like this for twenty years. After being called as “black wolf” as an abbreviation for “the wolf of dark campus folksongs”, he distributed hundreds of diversely stylistic songs, taking part in compiled albums from home to abroad, and gradually form three styles of improvisation, electronic noises and Nakasi. Being in Japan for over five years, returning home on 2010, Huang not only collaborated with harsh noise performer You-Sheng Chang for many times, developing improvisation in Taiwan, but he also, at the same year, started an original sound performance Minkoku Hyakunen with Chang, deconstructing, through the form of the theater of absurd and the method of materialism, the “interdisciplinary” idea which prevailing Taiwanese art performance field. ”Yingfan's Black Wolf Nagashi” conveys the powerlessness toward selves and the environment, by way of simple establishment, deriving different themes according to the different occasions. Noise and improvisation are immediate performance, which function very well at the interdisciplinary performance of modern dance and music improvisation “Sound Creating”. The Black Wolf’s life is best described as noise.
About LSF Artist-in-Residence Program
I begun to relate myself to LSF in the end of spring of 2010, when I met Chung-Han Yao as if we had have known each other for many years, It was then I watch some performances of LSF, in which I applied myself to participate, and went on stage to perform on mid-July. In 2011, I finally realized my position in the field of sound art, therefore, I viewed differently when I decided to embark Noise and Minkoku Hyakunen. Though there is no innovative idea within them, they are still enough to surprise the audience, and it is what I concern more. I hope, during the period of residing in LSF, that I can act as a listener, and when I issue some questions, I hope the audience can think for the sake of the other group of players.
LSF Artist-in-Residence Program Performance Introduction
Art is not always that great,
only when people dance with dawn.
I am a quiet coelacanth,
having lurked, since 12,000 years, in the deep part of your memory.
Sweet berries stand no hurt,
operating skills are in a prominent position,
to a sophisticated person, there’s nothing new under the sun.
There’s no need to realize how the next generation pushes the last behind.
The cells split up with geometric series,
only does the voice make us resounding,
till the infinity.
let all notes and noises melt.
