Scale is part of a series of observations of music traditions within the New Zealand Catholic Church. Discords and harmonies inherent in the multiple cultures present in this single Church are explored through Webb’s a capella voice-works.

Olivia Webb’s sound based art practice centres on the human voice as a way of exploring the histories of sites and spaces. Olivia draws on her experience as a classical singer, using a capella song as a way of revealing and ushering forth silent traditions and experiences embodied in space and place.
