HMMM Remix Compilation

Kathy Kennedy

The HMMM is a large scale sound installation that is developed out of the acoustic ecology tradition of the "soundwalk." It is a very long line filled with the sound of humming (both humans and radios) . It is an all pervasive, immersive experience with a sound that can be heard from many, many different vantage points. At the same time, it is non-intrusive, and never very loud in any one area. It lasts at least 30 minutes because we need time to adapt our hearing to this rare aural phenomenon.

The HMMM Remix compilation features work by Kathy Kennedy, Helene Prevost, Francisco Lopez, Margaret Schedel, and Kim Cascone, among others.

KATHY KENNEDY is a sound artist with a background in classical singing. Her art practise generally involves the voice and issues of interface with technology, often using telephony or radio. She is also involved in community art, and is a founder of the digital media center for women in Canada, Studio XX, as well as the innovative choral group for women Choeur Maha. Her large scale sonic installation/performances for up to 100 singers and radio, called "sonic choreographies," have been performed internationally including the inauguration of the Vancouver New Public Library and at the Lincoln Center's Out of Doors Series.

Her solo performances include a high level of improvisation over lush soundtracks of painstakingly mixed vocals and other sounds to create an immersive world of different voices.
