Just One of Many (2020)

JustoneofManyExcerpt.mp4

Just One of Many is an exploration into perceived silence and a celebration of the symphony of the everyday, revealing the cornucopia of life that is often not engaged. Each person making noise in their day to day are musicians in the orchestra of this symphony. This work aims to highlight this by juxtaposing intentional sounds with field recordings that fade in and out of each other. This abundance of noise experienced in the everyday is disregarded as there will always be another time to listen.

Visually this work utilises out of focus and digitally altered videos of nature, to emphasise an imbalance as humans tend to focus on the visual and disregard of the sonic. The composition fades in with the sounds of a sunrise and ends with a fade into a winter sunset, moments of time usually recorded via photographs and video but rarely sonically.


Just One of Many was featured in exhibition res[on]ance [off], curated by Gabrielle White and facilitated by Outer Space ARI.
