Please ask me how I feel is a sound installation presented on cheap plastic headphones that, seemingly left to their own, perform for themselves a song that reflects upon loneliness and lo-fi audio-technology. The sound piece consisted of high pitch frequencies alternating between major and minor harmonies. The loudness setting of the mp3 player is just slightly high enough to be heard in the whole 12m2 room private livingroom, making it audible as both background and foreground, depending on the listeners’ focus, so to aim at “stretching the ear” as one would stretch an arm to reach a loved one or like a loved one quietly asking for attention.
