From HIFI acoustics to Sound sculpture

"I and my friend have the same hobby to music and audio DIY. It’s intresting to DIY a pair of high-quality speakers. So why not DIY a sound sculpture to vocalize our own voice? "
Thus, Hao Cao collected the sound of three different senses for the sculpture, someone is riding bike through alleys; someone at the airport and someone in the market whenever accompanies by dog barking.The sound gives our the senses of transformation of time and space , make us feel the static sculpture offset. The audience with the "little boy" and "dog" become a role of transformative scenes.....
Today, another sound sculpture also comes out in January 2008 and is exhibited in some art institution. For example: opear Gallery Singapore, Linda Gallery Beijing andOsage GalleryShanghaiChina. Thesound sculpture is called " The Colony of Fantasy Syndrome---- Goodnight Julia".
" each person has a little depression in the modern city .sometimes we need some channels to abreact feeling, such as listenning music, let the heart keep calm and flexibility, we try hard to maintain our own and a little lonely space in the annoying city.
It is not so “art” in fact
The few number of people select for the sculpture creation as the professional art career after graduating from the Sculpture Department, because the market price of sculpture and painting is so low in comparison, but the creation of space and materials cost so expensive . employment in the teachers’ sculpture factory ? taking the Graduate student test and being a teacher ?or choice the work which don’t have any relation with sculpture? Finally, Hao Cao selected to become one of the small number------ professional artist. “Do you have any pressure? " Hao Cao frankly speaking: " Of course, before ensuring money of creation, first of all, you must afford to eat .But it’s very important to be supported by mum who is competent , strong enthusiasm for work . She is
a strong backup force in result to cause Hao Cao to choice the road of professional artist.
He says : " I am bored the life witnout creative. the status of free and relaxed is in accordance with my demand ,Choosing the so-called “art”, not because it is so cool or fashionable. 'Art' is not so great, so important, in fact 'art' is just our selection of the people ‘s work and live, like the major or engage in other types of works , it’s not academical .I choose it, because I only do this, and I only can do this. "
Enjoying fantasy, enjoying keeping pets , enjoying listening to Asan’s song with depression in the sad and lonely time," Lonely is one person's Carnival, Carnival is a group of people’s lonely .”-- This is the Hao Cao.
Pretty lucky, catch up with the "last bus"
For the young man , it seems a bit untimely to suffer the global economic crisis. he says Humorously : "it’s pretty lucky to catch up with the last bus." And he smiles : "though I have caught up the last bus , the time of driving is unknown ” Hao Cao says:” this road is difficult to predict future, but I have selected ,I would not change it .”
"When the network is more and more manifold, when the game is more and more real, if we can be completely immersed in the virtual world? Today is impetuous, when you pursue the definition of success of of others , or just need is a embraced across the distance ... ... in order to know that we are not alone ... ... hug, gaze, or just a song. "
Hao Cao will continue the road that combines music and sculpture, .For him, creation comes from an absolute passion and dedication, but also from the imagination and love of life .
