Deconstructing a recorded conversation between my dad, brother and I down to every pause, idiosyncrasy and inflection, I re-enacted each individual speech verbatim, before superimposing the recordings to reconstruct the conversation.

PLAY FOR A SINGLE VOICE —
Nearing the end of a reunion after some time apart, 3 members of the Malough family sit watching a poor quality, illegally streamed football match with impenetrable foreign commentary. When a phone call takes the father temporarily out of the room, the brothers' awkward silence breaks down and they finally begin to speak with a greater honesty.
