DESCRIPTION (ENG)

The song “Risseldy, Rosseldy, mow, mow, mow” is sung by students in the movie The Birds (1963) directed by Sir Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980). The lyrics “risseldy, rosseldy, mow, mow, mow” are absurd and meaningless. The song repeats non-stop, the birds stalk the victims, we the audience await, watching the scared students. I remove the humans and birds from the image to save those afraid of the birds. The song remains. Characters anticipated have not surfaced. Did they come yesterday or will they tomorrow? The wait is longer than real time. The song keeps repeating to kill time. All this is evidently ridiculous and comical degenerating into a silly routine, static in the air.

靈感來自驚慄大師希治閣(Alfred Hitchcock)1963年執導的一部電影《鳥》(The Birds),片中其中一幕為鳥群聚集,蓄勢待發向人類施襲。觀眾的等待伴隨著著學生所詠唱的童謠Risseldy, rosseldy, mow, mow, mow. 然而,藝術家把人和鳥從畫面抽走,救了那些怕鳥的人,剩下單調荒誕的歌詞於奇異空間裡迴環往復。眾人期待的角色遲遲未出現,乾等待的時間永遠教人著急,於是等待者們重覆唱著歌謠來渡過那比實際上漫長的時間,分散等候帶來的焦燥。不停的重覆把意義消磨掉,致使從聽話者的角度聽來一切只是荒謬又滑稭的慣常,成為空氣中其中一種白嗓音。
