Orchestra - by Ben Byford 09 Orchestra was part of the UNITED exhibition for ESA, Leeds 09.

Presented on its own in a room of Barkston House during the exhibition, Orchestra was a cut down version of the full piece yet to be exhibited.

It contained a single projection displaying 9 faces talking, seemingly, muted. The only sound coming from this strangely disembodied heads were that of their pauses, mmm's, ahh's. The sounds between words created a sound track to the piece, creating music, a song of pure incident, directed be myself by asking the participates to "tell me about themselves" on filming.

Video and sound installation first shown at 'UNITED' by ESA in Leeds 2009.
