A suite of 12 electronic sound portraits based on interviews from the BNA-BBOT archives in Brussels. Words from the interviews are edited out to leave only the hesitations, breathing, emotional reactions and environmental sounds. The edited interviews are then re-sampled and set in musical structures with wave-based electronic sounds, resonances, pulses and noise.
Wordless was originally commissioned by the ARGOS Festival, Brussels, Belgium held in October 2004 and was awarded honorary mention at the Prix Ars Electronica 2006. Photo series by Isabelle Vigier, thanks to Gabi Uetz.
