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.
The work can be realised in a number of formats, as an installation of 44 digitally printed magnetic text panels and video or as separate elements, prints, video or sound.
