Zoë Irvine (UK)
This sound work is exploring oral history recordings from the BNA-BBOT archives, an online open-access database that has been facilitating inhabitants of Brussels to record and upload their conversations. Voice is a threshold phenomenon, oscillating between the bodily interior and exterior. It is spanning the emotional and the linguistic and extending from the individual to the social. In the work Lies and Other Truths, Zoë Irvine uses biometric voice analysis technology to examine the emotional content of the material voice in forensic detail. It is an experimental work placing the voice in a new light.
Eloquent Voice has been kindly supported by DJCAD, University of Dundee.
