Performance for voice and electronics

 NicholasBullen_Performance_Exchange_WalsallNewArtGallery_MarkTitchner_Opening

A performance utilising sound as material for an exploration of strategies for engaging with and resisting the use of language in the political, social and economic spheres.

A recording of a speech by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (David Cameron) is rendered through text-to-speech software in a female voice. The recording is played back and processed electronically in real-time until the meaning of the text is obscured and ultimately transmuted into a laminar stream of sound.

Performed at New Art Gallery Walsall, Walsall (for the exhibition Mark Titchner: Be True to Your Oblivion) and VIVID Birmingham Centre for Media Arts, Birmingham (for the event Noise and Capitalism).
