SPOKEN FOR/SPOKEN ABOUT NOTTINGHAM 1998
"it has all to do with voice & relates well to Schwitters explorations of sound/voice"
SPOKEN FOR/SPOKEN ABOUT N0TTINGHAM 1998 is one of a series of related soundworks by London-based artist Bill Furlong.
For these soundworks Furlong puts a series of simple questions to passers-by in the streets of a specific city. Later on in his studio he excerpts small fragments, words, sentences, ambient sounds from the hours and hours of collected interviews, collages, repeats and layers them etc. The sound of the fragments overrules the original content.
