Work Overview

The audience choir is a joyful and inclusive work which invites its audience to take a sonic identity quiz on any available devices (eg. smartphones, tablets). The quiz result leads the participant to a bespoke electronic track to stream amongst all the others, creating a unique sonic tapestry based on the participants. The audience is then led in simple, chant-like choral singing.
