Living in a world full of reproductions and representations, Chang Yung-Ta thinks people have become too accustomed to believing in the authenticity of everything they see
and hear, and the original version of these images and sounds seems to be no longer important. Our everyday lives are filled with all kinds of sounds: noise, ambient sounds,
people speaking and other sounds, and Chang records them all, not to create musique concrete or ambient soundscapes, but rather to experiment with ambient sounds and
explore the possibilities of noise reproduction.

Y Phenomenon is a series of sound-art pieces. The “Y” stands for the city of Yamaguchi in Japan. While the sound artist Chang Yung-Ta was participating in an internship at
the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media, he collected the sounds of Japanese life, such as those from nature, those made by people, and traffic and television program
sounds. Chang then granulated and rearranged the sounds using digital modulation techniques making each segment of sound into a tiny granule, which travels through the
exhibition venue. With the new 2011 version of quadraphonic sounds and semicircular images, the viewer can experience the change in sound and visuals in space.
