Boston is the capital of Massachusetts in the United States / The economic and cultural center of New England area, the city is also a popular tourist destination with its rich history / I have spent almost four years in the city studying media arts and traveled around the urban area / Boston is home to many research centers, universities, technology companies and hospitals, attracting people all over the world to work and study here / The diversity of city’s population contributes to the dynamic soundscape of the city / The recordings were made between April and June this year in ten locations / Thanks to Bivouac Recording’s invitation, this project became a new journey for me / I have never recognized Boston by its sounds alone / Boston offers many more sonic adventures than what I could collect here / Even for the same location, the sounds could vary because of different seasons, time and weather //

波士顿是美国马萨诸塞州的首府和人口最多的城市 / 它也是是美国东部新英格兰地区的经济,文化和旅游中心 / 我在这里学习和生活了将近四年 / 比起别的大都市,波士顿不算大,靠地铁和巴士基本能到各个角落 / 波士顿区域众多的研究机构,大学,医院和科技公司吸引着世界各地的人材来工作和学习 / 由此造成人口的多样性让城市的声音也充满多样性 / 这些声音是在今年的四月和六月期间波士顿十个不同的地点录制的 / 多谢Bivouac Recording的邀请,“60分钟,我的城市-波士顿”让我用声音描述居住了四年的地方 //

May 13, 2017 / 16:51 / 42.361583, -71.056083 / A Dollar A Box! /农贸集市 / Haymarket is Boston’s historic outdoor market where you could find the biggest produce bargain / A box of fresh strawberries is as low as 99 cents / But what attracts me is its preservation of the face-to-face interaction between people that is largely missing in many chain grocery stores / Today, the market finds a diversity of the sellers and buyers / On a warm day, the air is filled with the aroma of fresh produce as well as the lively conversations of people / I stood at a narrow path between a vegetable stand and a cheese stand / The plastic covers for the tents were flapping in the wind / A young girl was trying to help bag the vegetables / A man shouts, “Dollar, dollar, dollar!” to attract customers / A man walked by and jokingly asked if I was holding a camera / Going to Haymarket reminds me of the time when buying produce depended entirely on visiting the local produce markets / Back then, buying things meant talking with people //

Haymarket是波士顿历史悠久的户外农贸市场 / 在物价不菲的市里,一盒草莓只要99美分 / 到这里买菜可以和商贩面对面的交流,和在超市里面对排放整齐的商品是完全不一样的感觉 / 卖菜和买菜的人很多来自不同的文化背景,他们的英文带着各种口音 / 我站在一个蔬菜摊子和一个奶酪摊子中间 / 大风把遮盖棚子的塑料布吹得哗哗作响 / 小贩们大声吆喝自己低廉的价格吸引顾客 / 一个男子喊道:“一元!一元!一元!” / 一位女摊主幼小的女儿帮她拿袋子装菜 /  一个中年男子看到我的录音机,停下来好奇的问:“这是相机吗?/ 不是相机的话那一定是一个香蕉吧!哈哈哈!“ 然后自己开心的走了 / 看着大家挑挑选选,让我想起小时候买菜必须得去这样的农贸市场挑选原料,跟商贩讨价还价 //

About the Artist:

Li Wang grew up in a coastal city in south China, where the industrialization dramatically shifted the natural landscape / In her childhood, she spent a lot of time taking adventures in the woods with her puppy / There she made friends with animals and plants / Later Li continued her adventure with nature at a molecular level / She explored the behavior of genes in a biology laboratory / Although Li enjoyed the process of solving complicated scientific problems, she discovered her desire to work with image and sound / When Li came to America, she carried her curiosity for biology into the process of media making, as a way to understand human minds and emotions / Soon after she began Emerson College’s Media Arts program in Boston, sonic elements became a critical part of her artistic explorations / She is intrigued by the soundscape that is shaped by the architecture, human activities and nature //

王励在中国北部湾的一个海港城市长大 /她曾经在大学和研究生院学习生物学 /但最终,她决定要用图像和声音来创造故事 /她随后来到美国学习电影和媒体 /在波士顿爱默生学院学习媒体艺术期间,对声音的探索成为了她艺术创作的重心 /平时在影视录音和后期混音之余,她常常用手持录音机录下有趣的声音 //
