My Voice Has An Echo In It is a six-hour durational performance of live music, spoken text and video set within a large-scale freestanding, sound-proof installation. While viewing the performers through two-way mirrors, audience members listen to music ranging from drifty ambient sounds to erasure poetry to raucous punk-inspired anthems through headphones along the outside perimeter of the installation. Complex and densely layered, Temporary Distortion creates an intimate experience where everyone has a front row seat. Viewers are encouraged to come and go throughout the six-hour duration of the event and are welcome to spend as much time in the installation as they like. My Voice Has An Echo In It is part of the fourth edition of the IN>TIME Festival
