TIMC09 我的城市!!!

Urbanism, music & video from Macau/Hong Kong/Beijing for a three days’ event

The Albergue da Santa Casa da Misericórdia (澳門仁慈堂婆仔屋) will be holding on the next July 3 to 5, 2009, this year’s edition of the multidisciplinary event This Is My City (TIMC), which is an initiative from the Cultural Association +853, co-organized by Albergue and with the institutional support of the MSAR Cultural Institute and the Institute of European Studies of Macau.

The event, which has the aim of explore new ways of feeling the city, is divided in three moments: a workshop about urbanism, a round table to debate the questions to be raised throughout the workshop, and also a performance that will include music and video art.

Similarly to what happened last year, the main moments of TIMC will occur at Albergue, in São Lázaro Neighbourhood. And once again, artists and cultural agents from Macau and China will be together. The 2009 edition of TIMC will also count with the presence of an artist living in Hong Kong.

The Cultural Association +853 invited the project MovingCities, based in Beijing, to coordinate the URBAN PANORAMA workshop, which will be held during the three days of the event. Conceived by the architects Mónica Carriço and Bert de Muynck, with the local assistance of the architect Nuno Soares, the URBAN PANORAMA explores Macau’s urban landscape by investigating the relation between the cultural/media imaginaries and the concrete conditions of the everyday.

this is my city, this is my skyline!

On the first day of the workshop, the participants will do a research about the characteristics of the city on Macau’s rooftops and sightseeing spots. The collected material will then be analyzed and prepared in order to create an exhibition, which will be inaugurated on July 4, at 20:30, in the conference room of Albergue.

On July 5, 16:00, also at the conference room of Albergue, there will be a round table that will seat together the architects who held the workshop and several individualities experienced in urban management and design. All those interested in the subject are welcomed in the debate. The URBAN PANORAMA workshop is for people who want hands-on experiment and experience of the urban reality and that have some design and analytical skills: students, architects, urban planners, designers, artists, photographers, film-makers, practitioners, writers and all interested in debating the city.

TIMC is an invitation to feel and enjoy the city. Therefore, on the evening of July 4 there is a performance in Albergue with artists from Macau, Hong Kong and Beijing, which is co-produced by 86/33 LINK [now called Kaiguan], a cultural association from the Chinese capital.

The performance starts with the opening of the exhibition URBAN PANORAMA. Then, Cedric Maridet will present his work, focused on field recordings, soundscape compositions, audio-vision and the construction of altered sonorous spaces. The French artist, who is living in Hong Kong, will bring to TIMC09 his approach about the Philippine community living in HKSAR.

After that, DEAD J will show what is being done in China in the electronic sounds’ field. Coming from Beijing, DEAD J is considered as one of the most interesting artists in the Chinese electronic music scene. During his performance, Chen Xiongwei, a VJ also from the Chinese metropolis, will manipulate images produced by the participants on the workshop URBAN PANORAMA.
