all voices are heard
About the work
all voices are heard models consensus decision-making, best known as the means through which Quaker meetings are conducted. The piece asks players to compare performed sounds and make alterations until all players are playing the same material, and consensus is reached. This facilitates strategies such as consenting, standing aside, or blocking. The piece draws on social science research into the similarity heuristic and consensus decision-making, continuing my interest in group behaviours that are made evident through performance.
