Sound Pieces

by Hernease Davis

Sound is an important component to my work. My most recent pieces, the Hums, accompany my blankets, pillows and photograms in the series A Womb of My Own (Mistakes Were Made in Development). The sounds are layers of my voice singing a capella to create a rich rotation of chords around a single note. Each tone is the length of one long exhalation, and each sound piece is its own meditation. More to come.
