Sound Composition by Courtney King

Facing transition and challenged by the pace and expectations of the city, Courtney and Chloë continually found conversation reflecting on what fun “is” and how, why, and when it occurs. Presented at Droven II, the work and additional vignettes (Sorrow Sisters, Womb Women, and Melancholy Millennials) responded to their awareness that there may not be a single answer.

Sound Composition by Courtney King

Presented at Drove II, this work is based entirely on material that was generated when Courtney and Chloë were separated by two state lines for a series of weeks. With a generative process structured around developing material each week and recording thoughts each day, the piece sought to discover how two independent bodies of material can integrate and relate after experiencing distance.
