Site-specific sound installation performances introduce participants to the concept of "intentional listening". Part audio time-travel and part ritual, they present archival recordings of unique live performances by deceased musicians. The artist guides the performance and provides a live commentary for each song within a historical context. A printed artist's publication accompanies each performance and is provided to those participating in the sessions. The publication takes the form of a song booklet featuring transcribed lyrics, song authorship, discography and performance details.
