This is the only official release of Minkoku Hyakunen (民国百年)—on an edition of 300 CDs. Its subtitle, Project Integration / Intervention into Tenryu City, means that the members of Minkoku Hyakunen take the sound of Taipei City as their “instruments.” Sometimes they just did the field recording in order to catch the city soundscape. Sometimes they “performed” there and made themselves parts of the field and recorded the soundscape, which includes the sounds they make themselves. There are 16 tracks collected from many events and places, some of which Minkoku Hyakunen have edited. Naughty, noisy, and really interesting.
