Mind Taipei

During a walking inTaipei city one can perceive many sounds, some of them very unfamiliar for a western person. Fragments of conversations, random music, sound of the impressive number of scooters...

I collected those sounds during my residency at taipei artist village and created an urban sound landscape with them. However instead of a pure sound piece I decided to design a head piece in order to place the sounds physically near to my mind. It is a representation of what i heard and what was sticked into my mind.

"mind taipei" is a headpiece equipped with 69 speakers that broadcasts a sonic landscape of Taipei. 
The piece is fed by a 9v battery and a mp3 player. all the electronics are embedded in the hat.
