street musician, New Orleans 2005

As well as documenting on camera for her video projects, Eng also keeps a sound journal when on the road. The sounds inspire her work, rather than serve as samples for  music in her projects. When creating a project she has an audio reference for a space, atmosphere and timbre that she translates through moving images.
