Ven Voisey

hymn/hum (Mojave variation)

A predominant feature of this place is its silence.  It is often sought out for this feature, as a refuge and stark contrast to densely populated urban centers.  When a sound is made in this environment, however, it carries, unimpeded.  The voices projected from these five rotating speaker towers are a collection of various peoples' attempts at matching their voice to an ambient hum, buzz or other droning frequency in their surrounding environments. The resulting chorus of these recordings simultaneously resemble an ominous song, a warning siren, or perhaps at moments, a prayer.
