Since 2008, French sound artist Yannick Dauby is collaborating with HORSE, a taiwanese male-only contemporary dance company. During these years, he created the soundtracks for the following performances:
– Bones (2008, National Experimental Theater, Taipei)
– Growing Up (2009, Theater of Taiwan University of the Arts, Taipei)
– I (2010, National Experimental Theater, Taipei and Theater in Tainan)
– Faceless by Chou Shu-Y (2011, National Experimental Theater, Taipei)
The sound material used for these projects is quite unusual for dancers and it became one of the specificity of the shows of HORSE : recordings of animal voices, urban soundscapes, industrial textures, electroacoustic abstractions…
sounds of HORSE is a glamorous publication documenting this collaboration. Its two CD contains more than two hours of sound works, organized and remastered for a domestic listening, and a double-folded booklet with high-quality photography of the dancers with texts by choreographers and dancers Chen Wu-Kang and Chou Shu-Yi, and Yannick Dauby.
This double-CD has been published in collaboration with HORSE and Atelier Hui-Kan.
