Synopsis: The work is a comprised of found field recordings of two types of dove- the collared dove (Streptopelia decaocto), which is found in Europe and the United Kingdom and the red-eyed dove (Streptopelia semitorquata), which is native to Africa. The work was a response to the experience of being from South Africa but living in England. While away from home, one constantly compares the places to each other. Sounds that one takes for granted – such as birdsong – are different, but still recognisable. In addition to this, prices are mentally converted in when contemplating a purchase, to which fellow South Africans say- “you just can’t do the conversion”.
