有時候,我想念我在看的地平線的時候; 有時候,我想念當時我聆聽在造船廠的聲音,讓時間過去。在某一天下班的時候,我跟失去了其中一個隻手指的船廠主人閒聊,談笑風生; 有時候,我很懷念我聽到某一種聲音而令我興奮的時刻; 有時候,我想念我是在油船內黑暗睡艙中想起在腦海纏繞著我的事。時間流逝。我想念了這一切。也許這些對你們來講亳不重要。但,希望你和我一同在沉浸我曾經聆聽過的音景。

Auditory Scenes: Nostalgia of Seascape and Doumen
Sometimes, I really miss the time I were looking at the horizon; Sometimes, I really miss the time I were listening the surrounding of the shipping building yard and letting the time passed. At the end of the day, I talked to the owner who lost one of his fingers; Sometimes, I miss the moment I feel excited about certain sound that amazed me; Sometimes, I miss the time I were in the darkness of the small cabin of the oil tanker and thought about something that haunted me. Time flies. I just miss all of that. Maybe it is not that important to all of you; But, hopefully you and me will be immersed in the soundscape that I used to listen.
