The “Public Catharsis Studies” are vocal performances that take place in public environments. The performances are captured on camera and two recording microphones, one in each hand. The vocals are then processed and composed, then synced with the video.
“Public Catharsis Study # 1” took place from the Henry Art Gallery through the Odegaard Library at the University of Washington. The video was then installed with sound in the entryway of the Odegaard Library to reiterate the experience as both physical and cinematic.
“Public Catharsis Study#0” was shot in downtown Seattle.
