Oa creates experimental music from the sounds of language. Writer Hugh Behm-Steinberg and sound manipulator Matt Davignon have recorded various anecdotes, conversations and sung pitches from their peers, neighbors, musicians and other writers. Performing either as a duo or collaborating with other sound artists, they break down these elements with samplers and digital turntables, then rebuild them into improvised musical passages and narratives.

Music is created from 100% voice sources, including:
Sheila Bosco (1, 3)
Rafael Canales (3)
James Cline (1, 3)
Ron Heglin (2, 3)
Gretchen Jude (2)
Denise Newman (1)
Sarah Elena Palmer (all)
Laena Wilder (2)
