During an 8-week Triangle Network residency at Lugar a Dudas in Cali, Colombia, Sarah Duffy collected a vast library of digital sound recordings, from Cali and beyond, in order to create an intricate audio mapping of her time in Colombia.

On Friday 8th November 2019, Duffy presented a short experimental performance at Lugar a Dudas, in which she merged her own live singing voice with some of these recordings; exploring the relationship between digital and live sound, as well as the many unique experiences and textures of sound that she encountered during her residency including the humming of electricity grids and the night-time chorus of the jungle.This performance has since been edited into a single-channel film work that builds upon the original live work.
