Lost Cultures / Found Voices is planned to be an interactive trans-cultural audio-art installation. Viewers wandering into the installation will experience a geometric configuration of large-scale wooden columns-formerly organ pipes-emitting recordings of several extinct languages. Each column is paired with a distinct language recording that plays when it senses a viewer. Lost Cultures / Found Voices includes an array of archival recordings retrieved worldwide from diverse institutions. Each audio element is a unique audio work. Interaction with any column in the installation ‘voices’ a specific language either as spoken word or song. The viewer is the performer in this work. As sever- al people wander through the installation a chance symphony of voices will create a sound ethno-sphere.
