“His Master's Voice” is a collage of the ‘macho voice’ as it appears in all walks of life: on the street, in the media (AM/FM radio), in the political and religious realms, in the contexts of popular culture and of high culture. For “His Master's Voice,” I have disconnected the macho voices from their settings and have re-contextualized them with each other. The message of the piece is as blatant as the voices themselves which penetrate our daily lives. The difference is that in daily life we are numbed to them and we internalize their message with little resistance. “His Master's Voice” makes them audible in all their blatancy. Perhaps it also makes us look more rigorously at what is covered up. HW
