Growing Up With Shanghai: Connecting With The City Through Sound
Terence LLOREN, Sound Recordist
Shen Yi, Photographer
The lecture will talk about the Growing Up With Shanghai sound project – how the artists can use sound to have a deeper connection with the non-visual aspects of our urban and natural surroundings, and how do photographic images provoke the collective memory of hometown.
Terence LLOREN has a degree in Architecture and had worked in the profession for 8 years before moving to Shanghai in 2006. His passion for sound and music led him to take night classes for audio engineering and in 2009 began his profession as a sound recordist. His experience has taken him all over China, Asia, and the US working on reality shows, short films, corporate videos, and award-winning documentaries. Terence also produces his own ‘sound documentaries’ that focus on using sound in creative ways to connect people with their surroundings and to create awareness of the non-visual aspects of humanity such as language dialects, local culture, and relationships with nature. He founded his label, Bivouac Recording, in 2003 and since 2009 has been releasing socially-relevant field recording album projects such as “Growing Up With Shanghai”, “60 Minute Cities”, and “Social Tapes”.
