Composer Juliet Palmer transports listeners into the acoustic poetry of the body’s interior in her new performance installation Inside Us. Vocal soundscape combines with diagnostic ultrasound recordings, giving voice to the rhythms of the circulatory and respiratory systems. Attentive listening dissolves notions of scale and place: from the constrained intensity of vessels leading to the brain to the cavernous resonance of blood as it washes from the liver back into the heart. In a unique live “mix”, vocalist Laura Swankey joins the VOICE OVER mind choir in the gallery on February 8.
