Hello! Sound, Voice & Connection

Pure Research 3 – Heather Nicol

Research focus

An exploration of the ways sound resonates when juxtaposed with objects and materials outside of the typical repertoire for listening. How does an artist whose background has involved using inanimate materials – which can be stretched, layered, reformatted or discarded without any regard for their contributions or feelings – translate their practice to include a ‘human resource’? How can this exchange expand or alter that practice, or the practices of participants?
