Whether its gathering them like a
sorcerer to conjure
strange and strangely moving incantations, or collecting
them to make statements in support for file-sharing, Halsey Burgund is obsessed with the
human voice, and what it can tell us about ourselves.
He uses the voices he records —
strangers’ voices, talking about the things nearest to them, be they profound
or mundane — like instruments, and the compositions he creates with them,
woven together with evocative and atmospheric music, make him one of the most
singular and intriguing artists at work in Boston today.
