'My last ten facebook posts', Cedar Lewisohn and Marc Alberto:
Artist and curator Cedar Lewisohn and contemporary musician Marc Alberto have collaborated to make a new work which crosses the disciplines of visual art and music. As both practitioners are interested in systems of production in their work, they jointly come up with the concept of presenting some aspect of their lives through a methodological use of  language and sound. To enable this process, Cedar first sent Marc a selection of his last ten updates from the social media website Facebook. Marc then translated these texts into soundscapes with the aid of human voice, traditional instruments and electronic collage.
