My project with Shiloh Burton is starting to take shape. We have figured out the form it's going to take. Over the weekend Shiloh took some photographs and I will be creating a text-sound-poetry-with-musical-sounds piece featuring her voice.
What we're planning is to display the photographs in a space with a chair in it where the listener can put headphones on and listen to the piece.
It will be a very private experience for each individual listener -- no standing around hearing a soundtrack with other observers nearby. This is the way we're hoping to share what was a very private experience for me, which was hearing Shiloh describe how she sees me.
The Fling will happen on March 11 at the SomArts Bay Gallery in San Francisco.
