Milk. explores the illusive properties of aural expression relative to the agential activities of words and phrases both inside and outside of the mouth. This work considers Denis Smalley’s (2007) premise of source bonding, which is defined as ‘the natural tendency to relate sounds to supposed sources and causes, and to relate sounds to each other because they appear to have shared or associated origins’. Within this work, the notion of source bonding informs a meditation on the transmission of desire through the construction and diffusion of sound.
