These are short form 'snippets' of the longer piece. They are in stereo and best listened to on headphones. The original Listening inside The Grand Caravan, is heard through a 7 channel surround speaker system.
Blood.Sex.Tears. is a participatory, immersive sound installation in two parts.
Part conversational, part confessional all real lives.
Part 1: The Voicing.
Do you have half a minute? Could you talk about blood? Do you have a story containing sex? What do you know of tears?
Inside The Grand Caravan is an intimate space for one. Here is a microphone and old style tape recorder.
You choose an envelope: Blood, Sex or Tears. Inside are your instructions. Press play and record together to begin. When the light goes out press stop.
You privately record your voice for 30 seconds.
Sound artist Sharyn Brand uses The Voicing’s to create The Listening
Part 2: The Listening.
Step inside the intimate and beautiful, The Grand Caravan.
It begins with a Ritual. A preparation for hearing. Now you are ready.
Unlike anything you've heard before. Be immersed within the streams of stories, secrets, joys, and pains as three simple words interconnect and collide.
Blood. Sex. Tears is the real life exposure of our community.
