about

张可,工作生活于浙江宁波,美术教师,从接触噪音开始进入实地录音领域,2009年买了第一台数码录音机ZOOM H2,因为够便宜,看着像MP3,小巧方便,能放到衣服口袋里,掏出来就能启动,不引人注目。然后,也因为每天下班后在外面吃饭,有大量的时间可以闲逛,也促成了以街头为整个录音的基本地点。

Zhang Ke , is an art teacher.He works and lives in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province. He was interested in field-recording after exposure to noise music. In 2009, he bought himself a digital audio recorder - Zoom H2, which is cheap enough and looks pretty like an MP3 player. H2 is so small and convenient. It can be put into a pocket, pulled out and started to record without attracting people's attention. Because Zhang Ke always have dinners outside after work, he has a lot of time to hang out, which make the streets the main place for the whole recording.

《卖Sale》的想法完全是在实地录音时发现的。我在街头录音时,各类店铺、路边摊、游商等等,都不约而同地发出叫卖商品的声音,当我发现有很多这样的录音后,就着手有计划地收集,时间上是完成《鼓楼GULOU》专辑之后的2011年,直到2016年才确定所有曲目。
The idea of "Sale" was discovered during my field- recording experience. During my recording in the street, shops, roadside stalls, tourists and so on are all making sounds of selling goods. Later I found that I already had many recordings of that kind sound, I started to collect this kind of sound as a project. The album "Gulou" was complete in 2011 , and the selection of tracks was not fixed until 2016.

期间反复走了著名的本地商业广场、购物街、批发市场,在城乡结合部的各种店铺外,摊贩周围徘徊。有时候,假装挑东西或者等人,得以拾取最好的音质效果。录音档的背后,实地叫卖声正快速地被录制的人声所取代,尤其是那些拥有30秒录音功能的手持喇叭,还有更雄壮的拥有U盘接口的多媒体音箱,明星、网红、半专业人士、操持各地口音的店家本人在此争奇斗艳,搭配起时兴应景的歌曲背景,震动一条街。

During this period, I walked through the local commercial square, shopping street, and wholesale market and wandered around the vendors outside various shops in the urban-rural junction. Sometimes, I pretended to pick goods or wait for someone in order to got the best chance of recording sound. The tradition of live selling voice has been replacing by pre-recorded voice machines in these recordings, especially by using those hand-held speakers with 30 seconds recording function. There also have the more majestic multimedia speakers with the U-disk interface. Stars, web celebrities, semi-professionals, and shop owners with local accents matching the popular song background were competing here, which shake the whole streets.

除此之外的,语言中包含的宣传信息、推销的话术也是趣味点之一,那些推心置腹、唯恐让你吃亏的循循善诱,用各种或温柔、或着急、或中气十足、或言辞肯定的语气,让听客们要么心动要么麻木,中间时有夹杂着顾客的交谈,则构成了更有趣的博弈之声。整理好完整的曲目后,躺在电脑里两年,一直拖延到了2018年才正式完成CDR,同样三十张,少部分送给了朋友。

In addition, the propaganda information and marketing words contained in the language are also one of the interesting points. Salesperson were pretend to motivated by heart and fear that will make you lose. They used all kinds of gentle, or anxious, or full of anger, or positive tone to make the listeners either be emotional or numb. There are also conversations with customers, which constitutes a more interesting game sound. After finishing the complete tracks, they layed in the computer for two years, and were delayed until 2018 to officially complete the CDR. I also made 30 copies and some of the copies were given to friends.

This is the first field-recording work released by Play Rec.
a Co-release of Zhang Ke's self-release project 2011/2018.
