MY VOICE HAS AN ECHO IN IT by Temporary Distortion is a six-hour durational performance of live music, spoken text and video set within a freestanding, sound-proof installation that is 24 feet long by 6 feet wide. While viewing the performers through two-way mirrors, audience members listen to music ranging from drifty ambient sounds and erasure poetry to raucous punk-inspired anthems through headphones, along the outside perimeter of the installation.
Complex and densely layered, Temporary Distortion creates an intimate experience where everyone has a front row seat. Viewers are encouraged to come and go throughout the six-hour duration of the event. MY VOICE HAS AN ECHO IN IT is presented as part of the experimental theater and dance series “OnEdge” by the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the InTime Festival.
