Small Conversation
 Statement

I used my own voice to create Small Conversation, a subtle soundscape of insect and amphibian night calls from Taiwan, a subtropical island where I grew up. These sounds are disappearing, not only due to environmental change, but because we increasingly fail to notice them being sung ever so faintly in the night. I want to add to the garden, already an artificial environment, another layer of complexity using my own imitation of frogs, crickets and other small creatures.
