Unreliable Encounters in Jurong
 is a collaboration based on a field recording I made in the songbird aviary at Jurong Bird Park in Singapore. Using the idea of language as an open structure that continually produces change and renewal, I invited Peter Knight to work with me and poetically improvise with this recording through exchange and reciprocity using a combination of voice, pre-recorded materials and electronically generated sounds. Our collaboration speculates on how the birds vulnerable to extinction sonically and vocally adjust to living in captivity.
