Sensoria Sunday: Stolen Voices
Sunday Sensoria Part Three: Scanner – Stolen Voices
Scanner is an artist who has mixed snippets of phone conversations (the ‘stolen’ voices), with his own computer generated sounds and images to create a driving, rhythmical spectrum of beats and sounds. This was not as well attended as the previous session with Tara Busch, but those who were there seemed to appreciate the skill and complexity of manipulating the sounds by setting disjointed conversations in a new, musical context and thereby alter our interpretations of them. Quite where he got them from, I’m not sure. There seemed to be some quite intimate and involved conversations which we became party to for a while, but it made them all the more intriguing and entertaining in the end.
