A hydrophone is immersed in a pool of lubricant, which acts as a second skin and substance for Miller’s voice to travel through. Scott transforms her voice with the use of live sampling and delays mixed with field recordings. Together they explore tactile and aural perception in search of new dynamics and textures. ‘Animus’ cultivates a chaotic interdependency between human and material by merging the organic and digital with an affective intensity of toxicity and intimacy.
