Siren Song is devised as a large-scale, outdoor sonic artwork that fills the skies of a city.
Beginning with technology used in the weaponisation and authoritarian implementation of sound, Siren Song presents the beauty and depth of the female voice on an unprecedented scale. Exploring sound spatialised on the scale of city blocks, from the tops of building and via the use of a helicopter equipped with tsunami warning PA system.
The work aims to invert ideas such as sound as an expression of patriarchal power, sound as an alarm or alert, and how sonic tools used to control and communicate might give voice to beauty and abstraction.
Siren Song is a marker of time, occurring at dawn and dusk each day, providing a range of female voices concerned with the future of humanity access to a scale of broadcast that matches the importance of their message.
