Printed Thesis Information:


So, when it came to deciding upon an area of research, how I used my own voice became the main focus in a broader investigation of voice within sonic environments. I wanted to explore, for my own practice, what effect the inclusion of the human voice may have within a composition. For the purposes of my research, sonic environment does not refer to specific types of environment (i.e., rural, urban etc.); rather, it refers to the use of field recordings of sounds from my own everyday life, for example house keys, the rain, a squeaky door.
