镇坪路 

 

和Terence一起,他将带我们步行游览苏州河附近老棚户区的街坊社区。他的故事展示了这里年轻和老年居民的原始的生活环境。

在上海内环,棚户区正在快速消失。房价飞涨,生活在这些相对落后的居住环境里的居民,还来不及反应,这些棚户区就已经一个接一个的消失。这些区域通常没有什么重要的历史意义,所以只要有新的开发项目,这些住宅往往是首先被拆除的。
这些声音是Terence在晚上收录的。嘈杂和安静的动态变化令人惊奇,有些声音几乎像低声的耳语,映衬着周围的整体环境。他的故事中也有一部分声音夹带着这片区域怪异的黑暗,强化了这些感官。

和以往一样,我推荐听者在录音收录的时间点边听变走,让录音和体验联系起来。尽管这片区域不是上海最繁华的地方,但它有着自己独特的味道。

Walking with Terence, he shows me around his neighborhood in one of the old shanty towns, or ‘Peng Hu’ areas, near Suzhou Creek. His story reveals the raw living conditions of all residents both young and old.

The Peng Hu neighborhoods are fast disappearing within the inner ring. With property values at an all time high and the relatively poor living conditions of residents barely an eye seems to be batted when another one is lost. Because the areas are usually not historically significant, these areas are the first to go in any new developments.

Terence’s soundwalk takes place at night. The dynamic of loud and quiet was amazing, some parts were spoken almost as a whisper to match the general ambience. Parts of his story matched the eerie darkness of the area heightening the senses.

As usual, I recommend doing the walk at the same time of day as it was recorded to to match our experience. While this area is not the most glamorous in Shanghai, it does have it own unique flavor.
