CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
[LISTEN TO THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US]
Annika Moses is an emerging sound artist based on Whadjuk Noongar land, in Perth, Western Australia. With a background in folk music and a fascination with the voice, her practice intersects text-based composition, radio arts, and seeks electronic/weird-pop/alternative-folk housings for vocal explorations under various monikers.
Her work for Moonah Community Radio [ Listen to the distance between us ] will gather the voices of a continent-wide community choir performing with thousands of kilometres between them. The work coordinates the simultaneous performance of participants dispersed across Australia.
Participants are invited to create noisy and inharmonic dialogues, sing with the buzzing of static in their voice-boxes, and form a national sisterhood of radio-song.
Composed by Annika Moses, performed by… you?
