Barbershop sound piece

Four speakers, located in the four corners of the gallery, played four looped audio recordings, each of a different musical instument. Each instrument played a short phrase followed by a long pause. These loops were of slightly different lengths, so that each instrument would sound at a different time in relation to each other instrument on each loop, occasionally overlapping. Duration 2 days.

This piece accompanied 'The Trembling of a Leaf', a show of paintings by Gawain Godwin.
