A New Career in a New Town

2016, audio, 2′ 59″ duration

Shortly after moving to Amsterdam in 2016, I was invited by London-based radio station Resonance FM to make a version of a David Bowie track of my choice. The title of Bowie’s instrumental neatly described my position at the time, and carries an invigorating sense of renewal and hope. In my version, the usually distinct categories of voice and instrument are merged and the voice, freed from its usual task of conveying language, can become its own song.
