Text, Performance & 3 Track Sound Piece

Seep. Seep. Seep. Seep. General Feeling is a sonic love letter to ‘Xeny’, the alien Xenomorph from Ridley Scott’s Alien, 1979. Weaving autobiographical diary entries of trans-affirmation and medical accounts of trans* individuals from Richard von Kraft-Ebbing’s medical journal Psychopathia Sexualis (1887), General Feeling carries voices of trans-ancestry and sensually speaks towards the sonic, fluid, overflowing capacities of an alien inside. Somewhere way out in the cosmos, another wor(l)d is recieving a signal, the voice seeping from the holes and pores of a speaker; an impossible womb for the words that make, morph and unbuild flesh. Ingest this transmission. Seep. Seep. Seep. Seep.
