"我在科罗拉多州长大,在丹佛附近住了很长一段时间,之后在2010年搬到了丹佛/在我眼中,丹佛一直是一个迷人的城市——这是一座位于落基山脉脚下,被称为"平原上的女王城"的纯朴小镇/这些录音是在2019年的夏天我到中国的第一年后回丹佛的时候录制的/为了完成这个项目,我去了几处在我记忆中十分重要的地点以及那些中国特大城市中难以寻觅的与宁静、自然紧密联系的地方/我发现在聆听那些平时被忽视的声音时,录音过程本身也让我获得了沉思冥想的宁静感/录音的另一个目的是捕捉丹佛在不同时期内变化的和不变的方方面面/和如今全球许多城市一样,丹佛正在经历着城市绅士化带来的巨大改变,也因此成为了一个许多长期生活在这里的居民无法负担的城市//

I was raised in Colorado and lived in the proximity of Denver for a long time before moving to the city in 2010 / Denver has always been a charming city in my eyes - a little cowtown known as the "Queen City of the Plains" that sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains / These recordings were made in the summer of 2019 when I returned to Denver after my first year in China / For this project I visited locations that hold significant memories for me as well as those that offer a connection to stillness and nature that has been difficult to find in the megacities of China / I found that the recording process itself also allowed me to access a meditative sense of stillness as I listened closely to often quiet sounds / Another goal with these recordings was to capture some of the ways in which Denver has both changed and remained the same over different periods of time / Like many cities around the world right now, Denver is experiencing great change through gentrification and thus becoming a city that many long-time residents can no longer afford to live in //
