Abstract

This work remixes the natural sounds of Boulder Creek (where the dialogue takes place) with some of the random urban noise and background ambience of the nearby thoroughfare. Ruptures in language indicate an intentional manipulation of the source material and useful postproduction techniques such as feedback and repetition highlight the affective qualities of the act of listening and deciphering. Meanwhile the dialogue itself creates its own metanarrative investigating what kinds of immersive listening experiences can be created using audio source material as the primary component of storytelling and how sound narrative can be a form of electronic literature.
