A revolving cylinder releases a long black cord with successive knots, which in fact constitute a sound notation encoded in knot’s position and its thread type. The knot positions correspond to the timing of each note, and the thread types connote each a specific hiss/click sound. The sonification of the knots is generated by a circle of twenty-four readers , results in a swarm of tiny repetitive sound patterns, combining to build a 30 minuites chilling soundscape of a surreal marshland. “Talking Knots” is a “digital” sound score inspired by Quipu of Inca , which allowed people to read it by fingers in the dark .

NTMOFA (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts) Exhibition works are consisted of the original score , the winder with the “Knots”, the photo and the video of “Talking Knots” performance on the mountain top near Taipei city.
