誕生于圖像和聲音兩個平行緯度的藝術音樂Zine | New Release" />
獨立音樂人 Faded Ghsot 與愛豆筆此團隊之間的淵源開始于2012年。多年來雙方在音樂和藝術領域共同合作，從未停止過在項目中探索和創新的嘗試。這一次再度跨界合體，通過記錄、采樣、拼貼和重組的過程，藝術家 Nini Sum 和音樂人 Faded Ghost，使用各自擅長的媒介 - 圖像和聲音，在平行的兩個緯度里合作完成了<MOON MAD>? - 它既是一本藝術出版物 (riso zine) ，也是一張音樂專輯：藝術書為音樂打造了流淌著的超現實場景，音樂讓藝術書環繞著移景換情的聲效。

? ??The Spiritual World of <MOON MAD>
“Exploring feelings and experiences of the sun and moon at different latitudes around the globe and the collisions of sound, culture and technology in these regions, <MOON MAD> looks at the power of tidal fluctuations caused by the position of the moon, and the effect this has on language, the calendar, art and mythology, as well as the weather and seasons, and the effect this has on the mood and intrinsic energy of an individual as well as a group.”

●關于藝術作品｜About the Artworks?
Nini Sum 以 Faded Ghost 專輯里的11首作品為靈感創作了對應的11幅 artwork，圖像與音樂的采樣在地理和文化上同源 - 宗教祈禱的手勢、人與自然(甚至是超自然)的聯系、跨文化的精神行為是貫穿的線索。 藝術家以數碼拼貼的全新創作手法，創造了一幅幅超現實的黑色美學場景，打造出一個開放、自由、奇幻的內在世界和外在天地。
Taking Faded Ghost's 11 tracks from the album as inspiration, Nini created 11 corresponding artworks. The sampling in both artworks and music come from same regions and cultural backgrounds: The praying hands, the connection between human and nature(& super-nature), the spiritual activities across different cultures are the common threads that run through both music and art creation. The artist took photos and image samplings from the internet and made 12 digital collages(including cover). These surreal imageries, together with music, forms up an open and free fantasy world.?
? ??Special Printing Technique?- Risograph
Risograph aka RISO printing is a high-speed, photocopier meets mimeograph printing system. It can duplicate prints from the built in scanning bed, but also has the ability to be used as network printer, which is very appealing to designers and illustrators when producing editions or self-published comics, zines and books. The underlying technology of a Risograph is very similar to that of screen printing. It also creates micro imperfections in printing. Similar to spontaneity or even comparable to how improvisation in jazz can be an unexpected but pleasant result.
●關于媒介的思考 |?About the Medium?
