I wrote the lyrics for a non-existent song. At each exhibition, I collaborate with a local singer in order to recreate the song in the native tongue of the area in which I'm working. The lyrics are open to the singer's own interpretation with the only restriction being that the song be sung a capella.
The singer brings his own understanding to the lyrics at the opening night of the exhibition in front of a live audience. This performance is recorded and later functions as an audio installation. Once the project is complete, the various versions will be compiled and released as a CD.
