Words which touch each other in strange places


collaboration with artist Laurie Lax

voice based sound work
7mins 12 secs

Collaborative sound piece with the artist Laurie Lax. Two texts, 81 Austerities by Sam Riviere and Bluets by Maggie Nelson were read by the artists in a monotone style, disregarding punctuation. All tracks were then overlaid to create a polyphonic voice swarm, almost obliterating the original words and making them incomprehensible, or creating a new composition. Using spoken text as pure material, the work questioned poetic authorship and the battle between male and female voices. .
