About say, Listen

In the book Hong Kong Story, Siu See speaks of ordinary sounds in teahouses and the streets of Hong Kong fading away. Words can never replace sounds. But they may be able to generate conditions for some serious listening.

This collection of fiction and non-fiction writings intended for anyone who has ever wondered about listening. All contributing writers of say, Listen actively and critically listen. They listen with pleasure as much as in hardship. Over a span of three years, these traces of their listening made their way into this book: a writer listens to the gurgling water in the gutters; another listens to the politics silenced and sounded out, or to the memory of home, to distance, and to the inanimate – some dirt.

The publisher soundpocket is an organization working on the understanding and exploration of sound as art. As the second book in the series Pocket, say, Listen explores the relation between words, sounds, and graphic design on paper. The voices and hands of many who contribute to this book reminds one of how Dawn Williams, curator of the durational sound performance Strange Attractor in the Crawford Gallery (Cork, Ireland) speaks of listening, “of the endless possibilities, given a little time and space, that can enhance our relationship with the changing environments we inhabit by just listening.”

關於《聽者言》

小思老師於《香港故事》談到〈市聲〉說家常話、難忘的市聲一去不返,「香港故事,竟然欠缺真切聲音,倒不如無聲了。」文字不能代替聲音,卻能造就某種真切的聆聽。

這本結集文學創作及個人經歷寫作的文集,適合所有對聆聽感到好奇的人閱讀。這裡是一些聽者的話語,從欣喜與困惑而來,有時也拒絕聆聽。三年來,這些聆聽的痕跡順著它們各自的軌跡溜進了這裡:一個作者聽著水槽裡潺潺的流水聲、另一位則聽著聲音的政治沉默過後又再鏗鏘作響、還有人聆聽有關家的記憶、距離,以至那些了無生氣的塵埃。

出版機構聲音掏腰包致力促進聲音藝術的理解及探索 。作為書目系列的第二冊,《聽者言》探討有關聲音、聆聽活動、文字和平面設計之間的多元關係。正如2011年在愛爾蘭科克城的 Crawford Gallery舉行的一場長時即興聲音表演 Strange Attractor 策展人 Dawn Williams 說,只要給聆聽空間和時間,它就能帶出我們跟不斷改變的環境的無盡可能性。
