There is no wrong way to sound.
Listen to the voices around you.
The texts are only lines, follow them, bend them, or forget them.
Let the image be the conductor.

Åčçëñtß is a sound-image work that employs subtitles as verbal notation to suggest the performance of its own soundtrack. Made with community choirs across Glasgow, the project explores accents as a musical material in our everyday voices that resonates with the complex flux between individual and collective identity echoed in the sound-image. The work is realised by its audience, sounding entirely different each time it is performed, reflecting the histories, presents and imagined futures of those who create it.

First performed at the Glasgow Royal Concert Halls as part of the Glasgow Short Film Festival 2019. Commissioned as part of my role as Glasgow's first UNESCO City of Music artist-in-residence, 2018.All images are courtesy of the artist.
