          Abstract

          For the Contingency of Curation conference we explored new ways of presenting the traditional paper to a conference by creating a sound work. The original content of the presentation was Host Artists Group (H.A.G.) text* written for S.H.U.'s Transmission chapbook series. This text considered roles of artists and curators and their relationship within projects involving large numbers of artists. The pros and cons of this relationship were discussed through an exchange of letters. Through the editing process the research gathered became more focused on the analogy of natural systems and relationships. Observations, comments and musings from the ensuing dialogue were mixed with field recordings adding narrative, emotional and physical value to the text. The research for this project was disseminated as a live sonic performance, displaced from the text instead of a formal presentation. The performance was delivered anonymously using laptops plugged in to the theatre's surround sound system. It consisted of a twenty minute listening experience of dialogue and immersive sound. * Thanks to Rose Butler and Lesley Guy for contributing to the original text.
