They couldn't speak, but their eyes were very eloquent.
There were piles of bodies there, and some of them were breathing.
You'd forgotten you could have certain things.

– words of New Westminster resident Jean Dorgan,

    recalling her experiences as a nurse during WWII.

"Five Stories All At Once" (2015)

Sound piece for 5 speakers – 7 minutes

Each speaker was assigned a recording of an interview with an elderly New Westminster resident. The interviews consisted of stories from World War II veterans, and accounts of life in Vancouver in the early 20th century. All 5 speakers played these interviews at the same time. Occasionally, various voices were highlighted by having every speaker play the same voice. The interviews were also digitally chopped up and spliced together in order to create an abstract narrative for the 5 voices, which were otherwise unrelated.
