Somewhere in the crowd there's you

Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, United Kingdom, B9 4AR
Somewhere in the crowd there's you


Melody, harmony, cacophony, beat.

This multi-channel sound installation layers collected vocals, earworm hooks, choral fragments and field recordings, oscillating between synchronisation and discord. Tensions between the solo and the chorus: precarious rhythms, tensions and surges, climaxes and relaxations. Melody broken to a sum of its parts.

Considering the 'group' as something simultaneously claustrophobic and comforting, embracing and alienating, the work takes its title from 'Super Trouper' by the not-so-harmonious-pop-group Abba.

Freya Dooley works with the potential and limitations of the live and recorded voice. She is interested in the shared experience of listening and the effort of listening. Interruptions.Deviations. The point at which things crack.
