“Stonesong” is an exploratory binaural VR environment implementing experimental storytelling and poetics as foundations for a feminist methodological approach to world-building. When journeying through this ethereal realm, the listener encounters multiple 3D rendered statues of the artist and other stone structures forged from both familiar and transcendent matter. Sonic elements of voice and stone compose a soundscape further illuminating themes of materiality, imaginative potential, reflection, resonance, and time. “Stonesong” contemplates the complex, layered, and shared constitutive conditions of metamorphic stones and trans* bodies, specifically ‘stone butches.’
