Please ask me how I feel

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 consist of high pitch frequencies alternating between major and minor harmonies. The loudness setting of the mp3 player is just slightly adjusted enough to be heard in the whole 12 m2 private living room, making it audible as both background and foreground, depending on the listeners’ focus, so to aim at “stretching the ear” to meet a dear person quietly asking for attention.

Presented at the group exhibition Thrills (by Big Shark), on 29-30th of June 2019 in Aalborg, Denmark.
