Interview with NOWNESS
November 9, 2011

What do you mean by etiquette of sound?
There are social norms surrounding sound that form our speech development and our way of handling sound with care. They're so deeply ingrained that, in a sense, our identities cannot be complete without sound.

What are your favorite sounds?
My own muffled scream, feedback, planes taking off, and anything rhythmic at 180 bpm.  

What is sound to you?
Two things: ghost and currency. It's there, but I don't see it (well, unless it's Slimer). And I am aware how much value the society put in sound, music, and vocal languages. It's a lot more interesting to explore a medium that I don't have direct access to and yet has the most direct connection to society at large.

What was it like being filmed by Todd?
He made me feel like a star!

What do you hope your art achieves?
My art as my voice.
