The looped Traces installation soundtrack, Eternal, portrays the story of a human life cycle. The soundtrack was created in collaboration with my two daughters. I found a recording of different heartbeats, at different tempos, providing the backdrop for the aural story. My older daughter Roxy created a composition that merges the heartbeat sounds with her tenor saxophone melodies and the rhythms of tap dance, which were created and recorded by my younger daughter, Sam. The piece reflects on cultural influences and the physical reality of a human lifespan. It is a story of lineage, heritage, and familial ties, which also celebrates the female perspective and experience.
