Voids (found sound artwork)

by Nicola Anthony

Composed of sounds from the sunrise birdsong in Yangon, Myanmar; blessing sparrows released into a Burmese Buddhist temple; the call to prayer at Shwedagon pagoda in Myanmar, the muezzin's dawn prayer in a mosque in Singapore, and the echoes of early morning street sounds collaged together from inside various caves and cavernous spaces. 

The Voids series are the artist’s response to the religious spaces and hearts of community which she has journeyed to all over the world, seeing in some places the crumbling of religion and society, the lacking sense of grounding, and a transience of home and heart.
