Null Gods 04:47


"DOOME" is a research and development projects trilogy by Cheng Daoyuan that explores the digital domain from philosophical perspectives, conceived in 2020. The first piece, "DOOME: Null Gods" approaches the relationship between collective unconsciousness and the attachment and transformation of information, attempting to construct an apocalyptic scene that contradicts space-time through sound and video installations.

In 2022, Cheng Daoyuan stayed in residence under the Sound-Off project of the Creators program at Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab and produced this project at the Taiwan Sound Lab. This site-specific production of spatial audio field combines three-channel video and 49.4-channel sound, blending the characteristics of space and sound field with sound dynamics and texture changes. It also attempts to guide viewers to different listening points in space by utilizing the time difference between sound and video installations.

The transformation between consciousness-carrying mediums, such as text, language, images, and sound is the key focus of this project, which are closely intertwined. Cheng uses his research records, text, and images creations during his residency as projections of his own consciousness, using his self-written content as the script for the overall narrative structure. He experiments with the effects of sound and video’s sequencing, overlapping and layering, with the constant transformation between formats as connections and materials for construction. Compared with the superficial affections, he focuses more on the complementarity and harmony of the underlying initial thoughts.

This release has been downmixed from 49.4 channels to binaural format, with the configuration and impulse response of the spatial audio field, best listened with headphones.
