The shadow of your dog

2018, 4-channel audio loop, duration 16′ 30″, printed text

(Stereo excerpt of 4-channel audio)

Where is the emotional weight of a song located? How does it engage in pathos? This is a song that listens, lets the body take over, and moves to a transmutational engagement with what Roland Barthes called the ‘grain’ of the voice, or ‘the materiality of the body speaking its mother tongue’.
