GOVERNORS is an ongoing audio research project that focuses on the interaction of feedback sounds. From the interplay of various electronically amplified instruments, a seemingly constant stream of shifting feedback patterns emerges that leaves a penetrating mark even after it has occurred.

It requires a non-dictatorial and responsive approach from the conductor or ‘governor’, giving each sound that emerges the space it deserves.
