An audio composition for voice and electronics that explores speech, homophonic translation and musicalisation.
Down Gone forms a part of the broader project ‘FERVĒRE’, a research-led, bi-lingual body of work consisting of multi-format pieces: sound composition/performance, live reading performance, visual poem, video & textual installations, and text publication. The project addresses the rarely recognised entanglement of racism and sexism on East Asian female body within the Western culture, going back across the recent history, with real-life incidents as references such as Atlanta Spa Shooting and murder of Korean-American artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha.
