Hu Michael Zajner

Hu is an auditory frame tale composed through various techniques of synthesising the human voice (syllables recorded by the artist) with animal recordings (taken from the BBC archive) and modular synths (designed on the Doepfer A-100 series). The artist creates a new language which provides the mythological foundations of modern man. The artist attempts to create an anti-soundscape where previously composed material is used as the source material to explore an ecological disequilibrium through the creation of new hybrid voices. The result is a frame tale of mythological associations, where sounds are understood not as a linear progression but in relation to one another. The voices which emerge from the piece express the Age of the Anthropocene.
