Using the action of humming to explore the intersection of sound, time/space and body, Tenuto took place on July 6th, 2018. It was a staged performance opening up the resonances of the foyer of the Birmingham School of Art with invited participants. The participants placed an intention to hold the sound within and without with relation to the audience who are enclosed by the sound and who may wish to add their voice.

This collaborative work was presented with Ed McKeon (who presents the work Tacet) to explore the intersections of time, space and body through humming, an unworded vocalisation that can be seen as a direct response to the moment in time, the spatial surroundings, their emotional affect and the people around them.
