Two chairs and a small wooden object with sound. This piece was presented in the Realia show, which went really smoothly and successful in terms of the participating crowd. The piece was also critiqued for my final in conceptual practices. If I'm going to continue to work with sound coming from unexpected talking objects, researching good speaker material is necessary.
download audio here:
The audio was created from a few selected excerpts from some separate recordings, all done on improvising with some kind of present feeling, confusion, or tries to build up a voice for characters. Then the dialog sort of came to be from copulated short poems I've written during work. I thought about conversation, especially with myself, and she came to be. Her not wanting to be apart of any it, " I want to roll, roll, roll". This movement to leave seemed so continuous a cycle in many conversations. She is becoming almost this second voice in me, creepy but I like her vibrating small squeak, she is a weak mouse. The man is forceful, "this is what you have to listen to now...", he speaks about some pleasure that makes really no sense then asks "did you hear every word i said... do you see the seat right next to you we have to switch now, i'm going to sit there..." I'm not sure where my man characters lead to, but he is very dull and boring and repeats but so does she, maybe they are meant together. "I'm still sitting in the same spot, I wanna roll..."
sit next to ____.
