Video and Sound

Video&Sound week 2: create a short sound piece

I recorded the sound in the subway station,  and a conversation happened in the train, and mixed them with a song called Bullet train.

I'm inspired by a poem called the commuter's lament. The poem is printed on the ceiling of in a subway station. The poem expresses every commuter's feeling.

Here's the conversation happened in the subway.


I want to express the feeling that in the morning, in the subway train, people are tired, overslept. But the train is so fast, the life is so fast, drives us to reality. Just like a song's lyric:

This is our decision to live fast and die young. We've got the vision, now let's have some fun. Yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do? Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?
