Interested in the notion of sound as a vibration and the world as a network of complex vibrations, Arnont Nongyao creates experimental sound performances and installations. Opera of Kard (Market) is an immersive multi-screen installation. Each of the 12 channels plays back the sounds and scenery from a kard, or local market in northern Thailand. These weekly markets are gathering places where people from different ethnic backgrounds congregate, communicate and trade. From people chattering to birds singing and the wind blowing, each kard is, for the artist, also a musical score. Rearranged into a single composition, the sounds now come together as a socio-cultural operatic performance of the kard.
