Yannick Dauby is a sound artist based in Taiwan since 2007. He relentlessly explores the soundscapes of his adopted island through field recording, audio documentaries, and community projects. He has created soundtracks and sound environments for contemporary dance, public art, and films, and has been involved in various ecological and local traditional activities. Dauby stayed in Penghu, an archipelago located in the Taiwan Strait, during several months in the first half of 2013. His daily activities included beachcombing, study and documentation of the reef animals, field recording, some teaching, and composing musique concrete in a temporary studio, an old building from which he could hear the seashore and announcements of the itinerant sellers as well as the rituals from a temple nearby. Immersed in this environment, Yannick composed the two sides of this record, using the sounds of the underwater fauna, the omnipresent waves, soundscapes of harbors, music played during funerals, shortwave radio broadcasts, in-site or indoor improvisations using old artifacts, and various sessions using analog electronic instruments.
