‘Touched Mute’ is a sound installation, which involves interactive performance exploring the way of listening and communication. This work applies touch as a way of sound communication and filtering, not only through intimate contacts but also mirroring a permeable secret. The performer(s) would be wearing the device on elbows or arms, and the sound would go through the body. When they place hands over other audience’s ears, the sound transmits from the performer’s hands directly into the audiences’ ears, without being shared with the second persons.
