Performance Introduction︱Chopper Switch
As an operating part, switches exist everywhere in our daily life. It could be a button or generally we believe that it’s just a button.
Above all, it’s about what will happen after switch on /switch off and the moment thoughts while using switches.
Through sampling different sounds, performing live with synthesizer, constructing them into a sequence of intermediate events occurring within the process of on/off … they must be designed with the present-moment awareness; hence they will become music.
