Forty Four Sounds 2012

HD Video, Found Sound, Digital Prints

Forty Four Sounds is a text based, sound collage, film work.  The text was arrived at through a random selection of previously chosen words and phrases cut from newspapers. The soundtrack was then composed from samples of forty four found sounds.  There are 44 frames/prints and the video lasts for 4 minutes and 44 seconds.

The work and its process references Dada poetry and sound and the chance compositions of John Cage.
