Programme notes: "Using her voice and a hand held recording device, this roving site-specific intervention works directly with the acoustics and activity of Open Studios, resounding through the stairways and corridors to create a sonic portrait of the Spike Island building."
This audio contains 3 clips:
1, Made by picking up a drone from a video of a slide machine, and carrying it through the Future Ritual UWE studios to encounter a synthetic voice.
2, The same drone carried across the building, and transformed into a glissando / portamento in a fire exit near Stephen Cornford's 'Migration'. A visitor out of sight on the stairs above seems to respond with a sound.
3, Vocal textures in response to the sea's surface and depths, in Matt Davies and Milo Newman's 'By The Mark, The Deep'.
