Sound art of Jing Garcia

A good friend tagged me last night to watch Jing Garcia who is a member of New Media Art Manila - Minus Ten Decibels sound art. The performance was held at the 2nd floor of Mogwai Cafe and Restaurant in Cubao, Quezon City.

I find the experience a bit weird and interesting at the same time. We have to leave our shoes outside and just sat at the floor where there are cushions everywhere. There's one row of theater like seat at the back.

After a brief introduction, each member started performing sound art. Jing, who is also the editor of the Manila Times technology section, was the 2nd and I captured a 10 minute video.

Jing's performance reminds me of the suspense thrillers I get to watch on movies. So sound art is interesting. Admittedly, too much of it can give you a headache afterwards. I think it will be great to bring a noise-cancellation headset should I get to watch another one.


  1. do you happen to know if translators of a song get royalty for the songs they translated (that is not theirs)?... and what percentage?
