Abstract or Description:

The performers are asked to phonate the sounds of a range of hand dryer models, that you can hear at the beginning of the clip, that Drever had recorded in an anechoic chamber. The performers slowly move around the performance space All the performers h

6 aurally diverse performers slowly phonated the emission of 12 different commercial hand dryer models that Drever had recorded in an anechoic chamber, and consequently phonated by other members of the group, whilst moving round the performance space. As well as doing their best to mimic the sounds with their voices, they were also given instructions to valorise specific qualities of the sounds that they appreciated, proposing new sound design. These works are participatory, inclusive and place the performers’ hearing at the centre of the process.
