Songs

Songs is a series of short audio pieces, based on sung instances of the word ‘golden’. Selected from tracks featuring ‘golden’ in the title (according to iTunes’ search results in early 2005), these excerpts were rearranged to produce several condensed audio interludes, at once plaintive, joyful and wistful. Songs is a companion piece to Vistas – a disconnected soundtrack to its multiple images of the Golden Gate Bridge. Songs was initiated during Electric Greenhouse (2005), a digital arts residency in London hosted by b3 media in collaboration with Artquest, London.
