On 18 September 2010 the artist Sebastiane Hegarty made his final recording with his mother after more than 40 years of capturing her voice. She is talking to him from a residential care home and we, as listeners, feel as if we are intruding on a private family moment.
This short experimental programme is a challenging listen but Hegarty treats his mother with the utmost respect. He raises key questions about the nature of memory, especially shared ones, and what they add to and take from our present.
Artist Sebastiane Hegarty explores voice, recording and memory in a sound portrait of his mother, who died in 2011. For more than four decades, Sebastiane made tapes of their time together, from a coin-operated record booth in Liverpool in the late 1960s to their final captured conversation in a care home. His mother became an essential part of his sound field, a voice and character woven into his work, and in this new piece, he reflects on voice and memory.
