Voice Station (I) (Audio)
Voice Station (I) is a fixed-media radio piece composed solely of recorded human voices. It evokes the casual act of radio dialing by presenting a wide range of vocal gestures and textures that loosely resemble sounds associated with radio broadcasting. Each station catalogues distinct timbres of disembodied radio voices, transformed and extended beyond syntax. The piece is the first work of the radio art portfolio of the same name, Voice Station, produced as part of the doctoral research conducted by Melike Ceylan at the University of Calgary.
