Experimentation and transformation are facets of the dream-like narrative evoked in the fixed tape performance of ā€œUā€. The found sounds of this composition are further modified by the addition of advanced vocal techniques provided by voice (Mannion) and the surreal visual constructs that are passively observed in everyday life (Wentworth). The senses operate within this arrangement in the construct of a surreal plateau of looped and tangential narratives that serve to mix reality with dream. Through the aural overlap and evaluation of visual themes the audience is led to establish their own storyline from past experiences and memories.
