this audio piece attempts to decode ingredient labels found on processed food packages. individuals were invited to stroll through a supermarket aisle, choose a processed food product and recite its contents without rehearsing.
from the recordings, a sound collage was created. a myriad of syllables all at once mimics the lengthy list. interestingly, the first few ingredients are often whole until the list spirals into difficult to pronounce, unknown items - on some occasions totalling twenty.
