The Missing

The Missing, 2018

This recording is a litany of missing women in Indiana. I’ve selected those whose cases are unsolved and largely inactive, presenting their vital information and physical descriptions, where available.

Full case histories and contact information for investigating agencies are available at The Charley Project.

I’m thinking about voices, lately.

The voices we encounter, every day. And the voices we don’t hear.

I’m recording the voice of a poet who’s been dead for 500 years.

I visited his house, once; I wear his words around my neck.

My voice, digitized, echoes down the centuries:

Midway, along the path of life.

A litany.
