The work playfully explores language and how the spoken word can carry meanings that are articulated through the subtleties of intonation, intakes of breath, silences and small vocal gestures. The piece is part of Walker’s PhD research thesis, focusing on exploring how intimacy and humour is expressed and activated within sound art.
