Jennifer Walshe shares her work ALL THE MANY PEOPLS for solo voice, film and electronics. Born in Dublin, Walshe is a composer, performer and visual artist of whom the Irish Times has said that “without a doubt, hers is the most original compositional voice to emerge in Ireland in the last 20 years.”

From “The Domestic Soundscape”:
ALL THE MANY PEOPLS” uses text sourced from Amazon.com message boards about vampire physiology, conspiracy theorist Francis E. Dec, the Courage Wolf meme, 4Chan and Google Autocomplete. Words taken from these disparate sources are organised like sonic bricolage, each phrase being lent its own accent, cadence, and character. Moving nimbly between speed and pitch, and punctuating her hybridised language with non-verbal sounds, Walshe invokes an impression of listening to the Internet at high speed.
