How I Heard It

Description (in English): 

This aural poem about a speaker’s perception of a bar fight is arranged on a visually minimalist interface that allows readers to experience both the chaos of the event and the calm recollection of it afterwards. Each circle (or is it the letter O?) contains two areas that respond to mouseovers. The circumference triggers the playback of a recorded line of speech that tells a piece of the story. The center triggers a loud diegetic sound that takes the narrative beyond being a language constructed event to something that feels real. You can trigger more than one sound clip simultaneously, by the way, and if you move your mouse pointer rapidly over the whole piece, you can create a truly chaotic mess of sound and information— perhaps like the experience of a bar fight.
