Indifference (30 min, 2019)

Audio

 

This piece experiments with the idea of (vocal) transmission. The artist records herself listening to a selection of spoken languages, while simultaneously imitating them. Through the instantaneous reproduction of the heard syllables, their particular intonations and pronunciation, the tie between sonic and verbal expression loosens and eventually fully diminishes. In order to focus on the sounds and tonality of speech and to distance herself from meaning, foreign languages that are unknown to the artist have been chosen.
