Cloud chorus (2010)
digital recording; 2.45 mins
A collage audio piece recorded live on my phone at a gathering in a flat in Hackney. I handed out sections of a landscape poem called The Seasons that I had written to the group of women who had assembled and we sat on the floor in a circle. My brief was for a group reading with the catch that we would all start at the same time, but no one could speak over anyone else. The organic poem that unfurled created a space of deep listening and shared breath. It was an exercise in concentration, listening and intuition. Afterwards, I recut and edited the recordings we made, layering voices and words into this track.
