Whisper is a whispering gallery-inspired web app designed for collaborative performance between audience cell phones and a performer. The audience record themselves whispering into their cellphones, then upload their audio samples to a server. The performer controls a separate webpage through which they diffuse the samples into multichannel space, using the JSAmbisonics library. The piece is intended to engage the audience and give them agency through the use of their voice and the choice of whether to upload or delete their recording. The soundworld of the piece is designed to create a highly inti-mate and immersive experience which plays with the intelligibility of speech.

Whisper uses the poem In a Whispering Gallery by Thomas Hardy
