About Us

Mapping Our Popular Music @Taipei 先導計畫,主旨為向利物浦流行音樂中心 (IPM) 的經驗借鏡,以繪製記憶地圖為一方法,探索台北音樂工作者的微歷史(Micro-history)和對城市空間的利用。

計畫主持人林真宇將同導演Charlotte Sawyer,拍攝七位音樂人或產業工作者繪製地圖的過程,剪輯成影片,以中英雙語呈現,能將初步研究成果及台北的音樂場景介紹至國際間。

台灣擁有特殊的音樂歷史,流行音樂產業長時間獨步全球華語地區。因其日益開放且多元的文化氣氛,近年獨立音樂的場景熱鬧,也被籲為「世界最新獨立音樂首都」。有感於產業界與學界,對台北音樂產業區位的理解與歷史記憶,仍然缺乏,此計畫致力於了解不同的音樂工作者,如何與台北的區位和場館互動,期望為長期文化政策,帶來第一手數位化、視覺化的資料,藉由國際交流與合作,推動長期計畫。台北,亦能在國際間,成為「有故事的音樂城市」。

合作單位IPM將提供人力,支援地圖的分析、網站及影片的英語化、以及英國的宣傳和計畫的延續發展。此外,此計畫也將加入英國藝術與人文委員會(AHRC) 的音樂與地圖 (Music and mapping)網絡,整合進入全球音樂地圖的網絡。長期目標為收集不同城市地圖資料,延伸至各種跨界計畫。
