This video explores the play between two definitions for the word "cover". I perform a version of a song by rock singer PJ Harvey by hugging a set of speakers against my body while the music plays. This gesture changes the sonic character of the music to produce a "cover" of the original song. It also serves to stifle some of Harvey's extreme vocals. By inhabiting this space between between repetition and protection, I raise questions around the nature of performance, authenticity, and control within musical production.
