They Don’t Even Fit Ya Frank Koustrup

They Don’t Even Fit Ya (These are High Heels) is a verbatim soundscape of children playing outside. A boy criticizes a girl for wearing her mother’s shoes. The boy repeats his phrase several times in exactly the same manner and tone, like a loop running on a machine. Other children assert unrelated statements or outbursts. The voices, narratives, and thoughts run independently and in parallel. No child really listens to the others, or if they do, they don’t care. Each effectively plays alone.
