At Volatile Parts Residency, Atlanta, with performer Erin Palovick, September 2019.
Comedic, chaotic, unpredictable, and tender, Nothing Fits In The Tub is a sound performance with an underwater microphone, in a site-specific resonance chamber.
Within a room that listens to itself, conversations of visitors become a musical din, footsteps become possible bass lines. The basin itself is also a site of activation— thumped like a ripe melon, tapped with fingernails, reverberating the howls of a submerged, deflating balloon. Sound begins as a clear echo and slowly repeats, blends, and fades, like a more sustained, reverb-ey version of singing down a hall or playing accordion on a cliff.
