Labyrhythms (2015)

Labyrhythms explores the language of high-energy physics as sound rather than meaning. Deliberately obscuring meaning by layering recordings of scientists reading the abstracts of their favourite papers means that only the rhythms and tonality of jargon. As the layering deepens the meaning is completely obscured but sounds of words pop out from the cacophony.

This piece was completed during a 2015 residency at TRIUMF, Canada’s national nuclear and high-energy physics laboratory.
