Speech Factory

for 4 human speakers and a projector in the ARC Gallery for the KARRAS Festival, Chicago

When love becomes its own discourse, it abandons its loving identity for a more impersonal commodity. Nothing here resembles romance. Similarly, when the human voice becomes its own self-fulfilling mechanism, it loses its personage in favor of an unaffected product capable of being reproduced.

Each movement can be viewed as a product that clearly and distinctly explores a single sonic or linguisitic constituent of speech. The notation from movement to movement is intended to be highly distinct in its visual representation of sonic/linguistic ideas.
