Les Parleuses (All the Things that Could bot Be Said) (2014) is a commissioned work for Dear Gordon curated by Caroline Le Breton.
The starting point for the exhibition was a discarded letter found over a decade ago by artist Jonathon Cole.
Interested in the material qualities of voice and ideas around the acousmatic the work explores the implication of voice within writing. Being unable to fully identify the author of this letter the artist ran its contents through speech software. this computer generated voice further dislocates the contents from any sense of an embodied origin. This disembodied voice is then returned to the physical by being transposed onto 3/4 inch audio tape and formed into a three meter long tape loop. As the loop is incessantly fed and played through the machine it slowly destroys itself until only the internal 'workings' or 'organs' of the reel to reel machine can be heard the the anonymous authors voice returned to silence.
