New Voices
1m37s ; 2016

“New Voices” is an audio work that looks at the meaning of the term ‘voice.’ It consists of sounds from conversations in digital media. The work doesn’t convey meaning of the conversations but suggests that the sounds produced represent voices where they are absent. “New Voices” explores the way in which digital media has changed the way in which humans interact with each other, particularly over the internet. Voices may no longer be words.

This work is intended to be looped to create an infinite "conversation.” Headphones are also advised.
