The note

Kate Murphy
2010

Composer: Basil Hogios

The note was conceived when Murphy read a distant relative's suicide letter. Murphy asked composer Basil Hogios to develop a musical composition based on every word written in this letter. The result is a single-channel video installation, encompassing the quadraphonic sound of Hogios’ musical composition and performed by a mezzo-soprano to an empty theatre.
