Workshop experimenting with mobile phones and live real time conferencing protocol. Individual's phones joined voice, performed and environmental noises in a dirty feedback.

Texts collated by Amy Pickles discussing the first recording of a human voice, an unknown female, and texts that considered how we record, what is lost, edited, removed and forgotten were the source.

The acoustic output was being performed more by digital noise cancelling, and network interference, curated via a custom performance software instrument through looping and time manngling.

Thank you to participants Alana Apfel, Gentian Rosa, Laurie Lax, Stacy Brafield, and Amy Pickles. To Sound Theorist Marie Thompson for Beyond Unwanted Sound: Noise, Affect and Aesthetic Moralism and the recording of an unknown woman in 1860, the first ever recording of a human voice.
