Project Description

Dan Scott

Dan Scott proposes creating a sound replica of the rural village of Covas do Rio. The work will be a cover version of a field recording he will make during the early stages of his residency. This piece will be constructed using only Dan’s voice, and the voices of local people. The piece will address issues of authenticity within sound as well as exploring the mimetic, sympathetic magic inherent in the ‘cover version’. The human voice is central to the piece, re-vocalising the sounds of the village, embodying the space and humanising it.
