Sonic art // Embrace Failure // Experimental soundworks


Embrace Failure is a sonic collage that condenses a piece of discourse to focus on breaks in speech. Discourse markers, interjections and other such uncertain utterances are presented in rapid succession to create an atmosphere of hesitancy and confusion. The comment “it is important to embrace failure” aptly encapsulates the previously uncertain and unsuccessful attempts to recall what it is they meant to say.
