Can one man stand amidst his many voices and find herslef there? Can a person sing harmony with different parts of themselves? Can we trace the sound of ourselvs as we change? If so, what remains of the original voice?
Through an exploration of voice, trace transforms a private story into a performaive experience integrating sound, video installation and live performance. Using Archival recordings taken before and during Tristan R. Whiston's gender transition from female to male, along with recent recordings and live vocals, trace explores the idea that chance is constant, and we are always becoming someone new. Throughout the installation are multiple speakers, each playing a single part or element in the immersive soundscape.
Audience is invited to contribute to the performance by entering one of the installation's beach inspired changing huts and, using old-fashioned technology, create their own volca recording, eliciting an experience of auditory self reflection.
