“It is light, as well as Relight & Music”

We live in groups, we are alone, we are isolated, we listen, we create, and we perform. In the resonance of the 2020 world, we look for the sound of life by Zhēnzhēnlab's collaboration with the sound artist Yenting Hsu, exploring the future possibilities beyond our accustomed cognition, pushing the boundaries through creation, and arrive the fronter of light. The work L001, as the first lampwork, is made with a piece of round glass. The outer ring indicates the context of glass craft and contemporary design. Its size is a tribute to a 12-inch vinyl record, which, in response to the concept of the "Relight + MUSIC" album collaboration with Yenting Hsu. The work converts the sound made by the vinyl disc stylus contacting the glass patterns into analogue audio. At the same time, it includes the various sounds of glass cutting, polishing and welding.

【Relight + MUSIC】
When a piece of patterned glass, approximately the size of a 12-inch vinyl record, is placed on a turntable, what arises from the textures of the glass patterns are sounds of varying frequencies and modulations: electronic beats, heartbeats, bursts of noise, and murmurs. By listening carefully, even melodies unfolding in the background can be heard. Each piece of glass is like a planet, twinkling within the space of unique rhythms and sounds. Using the visual, tactile and auditory features of traditional patterned glass, as well as the glassmaking process, this album hopes to trigger a sense of wonder and imagination in the listener. Listening to the refinement and modulation found within different patterns, we search for the sparkle arising from the impact of glass planets and the universe created between listeners and sound.
