Sound Life (2015)

‘Places are constructed by people doing things
and in this sense are never “finished”
but are constantly being performed’ ­– Tim Cresswell, Place


Sound Life was a performance that I conceived for Sound Life / Space and Words Collective and co-designed the sound design with Tim Murray-Browne.

It was a performance questioning autonomy in collective choice, and how space helps or hinders our creativity. In this piece, a collective of improvisers practice forgetting, while a microphone creates delays, loops and disrupts the moment, creating temporary shades for ‘memory’ to exist. It was presented at Spontaneous Combustion Festival.
