Dictee Sound Art

I’m working on a group presentation on Teresa Cha’s Dictee for my experimental writing class. We’re opening the presentation with a puppet show. The lights will be off and everyone has to sit on the floor on blankets, and our puppets are just our hands with some eyes on top, kind of like these. The projector screen will be down and we’ll be projecting just a long long transition between white and red and black, some prominent colors in the book.

We’ll be behind an overturned desk, and the puppets will just be staring at the audience, and then a piece of sound art I made will play.

It’s a paragraph from the beginning of the book, read in English, French and Korean.
First it’s just English, then it’s a combination of an English computer speaking English, a French computer speaking English, and a Korean computer speaking English. The same thing happens twice more, English, Korean and French speaking French, English French and Korean speaking Korean, and then it switches to a combination of each voice speaking their own language, followed by a combination of the voices speaking a language not their own with an accent. It should be pretty cool!
