Conversation on a mobile device, a fixed line or via mobile app. Through the phone call a listener experiences the sonic in various ways - a recorded sound or a live interaction where the receiver is passive or alive, participative interaction where the receiver responds to instructions for actual actions. There is an excitement in receiving a call to your own phone, experiencing a new voice and imagining the person behind the voice. As with any phone call, it might not be possible to ascertain for certain whether or not the person on the other end is who they are, where they say they are, or even perhaps if they are human or actually present.
