SOUND PROJECT: AUTHORITY

The audio piece that I have constructed uses an abstract concept from the original notion of ‘Authority’. The work poses a question rather than providing a definite answer, the question being: Can nature’s natural authority and constant presences be overruled by the temporary consumption of man by technology? Nature is represented by the distorted water sounds present through the whole piece, elucidating nature’s constant existence in humanity. This is immediately juxtaposed by the introduction of technology, represented by samples of an Apple iPhone. I have altered the volume of the water so it is becomes the dominant sound, however because of this, it makes the listener focus on the quieter mobile sounds. Thus, creating a kind of irony, as we usually have to focus to hear natural sounds over man-made, but in this case you are forced to do the opposite and in fact you begin to ignore the natural flow of water.
