PRODUCED WITH THE KIND SUPPORT OF ARNIS RESIDENCY

"in her work 'a to b suspended' teresa cos engages with the repetitive operations of arnis' cable ferry. based on the tonality of the engine’s droning as a csus4 her sound composition reverberates the voices of the local women’s choir and the naval church's organ. her sound performance takes place during a last journey of the ferry, however, stopping in the middle of the water and reversing speed before it reaches the other shore. teresa’s modular and shifting layers interleave the sounds of the ferry and its natural environment, evoke hypnotic sensation and play with the possibility to reverse the perception of time — a shared instant with strangers allows the intimate and public to merge.".
