sounds from above the ground

Duncan Speakman

Festivals: M:ST 4 Biennial | October 3 - 17, 2008.

This walking-based performance uses radio receivers and a laptop to transmit and remix sounds from the urban environment, passed from the artist to the audience members as they follow a trail of audio clues through the city streets. This circuitous walk is a contemplation of what remains after the city’s sounds have washed through our ears; it alludes to what is left of us after the street noise has drowned out our own sounds.
