What it Was When it Happened is a multi-directional audio installation made entirely from recordings of the voice. The vocal recordings stem from interviews with over 20 individuals; each describing the phenomenological experience of change. The piece explores the process of change, the sensation of something shifting; of metamorphosis, and how these intangible, ephemeral sensations are conveyed through language.

The new configuration of voices creates a conversation between multiple subjectivities, using space and direction to create an immersive experience and a reconfigured relationship between numerous voices, between numerous selves or even suggesting the profusion of selves within one individual.
