Composed of women’s voices and underpinned by acoustic and electronic instruments, FE fills a room with the sound of intimate but fragmented conversation. Touring the room at random reveals multiple and continuous linkages of speech, the tones of which are not normally heard in the public sphere. From the center of the room, the resulting environment is a diffuse, musical murmuring. As the listener moves about the space, particular stories come into focus.
