Contact Regarding Availability

Participatory sound piece in which all audience members were instructed to individually visits a nearby power transformer to make a recording of their voice humming along to its sound. The recordings were combined and played back at the end, showing coincidental harmony between voices.

This work serves to explore my interest in listening and awareness, and creates a scenario in which audience and performer are merged. It also presents a democratic social model where, aside from providing the framework for each iteration, the composer's voice is equal to all other voices in the final product.
