Halsey Burgund


Halsey currently works as a musician and sound artist living on the outskirts of Boston. Both his museum installations and musical performances make extensive use of spoken human voice recordings as musical elements, alongside traditional and electronic instruments. He collects these voices from otherwise uninvolved individuals whom he records in various locations, from museums to street corners to rock clubs as well as over the internet and using smartphone apps.  Halsey’s band, Aesthetic Evidence, performs his music publicly, often including interactive performances in which he records audience members’ voices and uses those recordings improvisationally within songs.
