Song sheets
Working with members of the public to rework the lyrics of their most personal songs in order to describe their attachment to it, the project has explored the limitations and contrarieties of language and at the individual interpretation of words.

The work is documented through audio: recordings of the participants reading the lyrics to their selected songs; recordings taken from poetry and exhibition events where the audience has been invited to read the new texts aloud together and recordings from a variety of performers and artists reading their own interpretation of the texts (see below).
