1000 Ears is a live audio performance for one person at a time. It is a collaboration between performance maker Mengting Zhuo, and computer musician and software engineer Li Song.

Initiated from the sense of isolation from lockdown, this piece intends to form a non-visual, intimate engagement with ‘human sounds’. Via a web-based interface, the participant will be able to ‘travel’ through different scenes at their pace. Combining field recording, live sound sampling and processing, the artists will pick up live sounds from the field and broadcast it directly to the ears of each individual.

This piece brings a different perspective and dynamic to online engagement. Each journey will be unique, so as every life we encounter.

The piece is accessible to people with mobility and visibility impairment, and is in line with the social distancing regulations.
