This short single-track recording documents the very first vocal sounds I made in the barn, allowing the multiplistic echo to ring after each sound. Listening back to the track, the mic had picked up audio from outside the barn, and it seems to create a kind of chance ‘call and response’, or antiphony in the language of polyphonic form. So my call is ‘responded’ to by a dog bark, a bike bell, a woman’s voice, and a horn. I like this notion of ‘voices’ coming from both within and without the barn.
