The Reflexive Sound Scene: Soundscape Writing and Discourse Archaeology in Sensory Ethnography

The Reflexive Sound Scene: Soundscape Writing and Discourse Archaeology in Sensory Ethnography

- LIN, Hsin-I, Associate Professor, Institute of Applied Arts, National Chiao Tung University

This study utilizes sensory ethnography to emphasize the thinking of 'multisensory', 'embodied', 'emplaced', 'reflexivity' and 'knowing in practice' as the core methodology of knowledge construction. The production involves reflective practices such as physical senses, historical narration, threshold subjects, memory sounds, and oral narratives. These embodied practices take places as 'event' to explore the possibilities of using "words" as the main form of expression in the writing of ethnography, and to further explore how spaces and places affect identity politics. How does the subject discourse construct its own subjectivity through the sounds of places? The national war intervenes with life politics, constructing the concept 'others' in the theory of knowledge. How does the field revival perception advocated by sensory ethnography open its body to writing outside its domain in a heterogeneous space? How does one translate the field experience of the body into the 'Technology of Self' of spatial sounds? Through artistic practice, how does one let viewers and local people delve into reflexive thinking about the cultural relationship between itself and history, itself and the world? These are the important issues of consciousness in this research. This series of actions and responses to these issues of consciousness are also the body echoes of historical space and local events.
