Becky Grajeda is a sound artist and designer based in Chicago, Illinois. She primarily creates works of sound assemblage, multi-channel sound installation and performance. These frequently include field recordings of the sounds of machinations and moving bodies and/or involve abstracting vocal inflection, intonation, and intended meaning in speech. In her works involving speech, she calls attention to the multiplicity of meanings, interpretations, and translations of a text, and how those can change when a text is spoken and depending on the speaker of a text. In her recent performance works, she examines the voice as a conveyor of a person’s physical, emotional, lingual, and geographical histories.
