Sonata for Smoke

  • 16'
  • Hong Kong
  • 2021

How can we capture smoke, something that always escapes our grasp? One way is by sound. In Kyoto, the Hong Kong artist Samson Young sets the stage for a series of theatrical events to trigger the emission of smoke. A man holds a boom mic – often so close it singes – to record the aftermath.
