Poisonous Oysters - Anna Barham


The material in the book was generated during a 'live production reading group' held in Newcastle University’s Fine Art Department. Passages from the following texts were read aloud by the participants and interpreted by speech recognition software over and over, creating a poly-vocal feedback loop with the machine. The output is rewritten in the book as a score, flattening the time of the event and aligning the different versions of the texts to reveal the sound mutations between them. Images captured via a handheld scanner during the event act as punctuations and interruptions to the text.
