long: a composition for staring out a window across the wide wide world
vibration speakers and window glass
vocalist: Elizabeth McTernan
This stereo sound piece was made in two takes using a looper pedal to layer the vocals. The word "long" is sung over and over, each time by extending and pushing the sound out until all the breath in my lungs is completely spent. The vibrational speakers turn the window pane into a speaker itself, playing the piece for both people in the gallery and passers-by on the street.
