Review of Sonic Residues 02 by Ian Stevenson Computer Music Journal Vol 25 No 3 Autumn 2001 pp 82-85 below:
A video work by Sydney composer and performer Donna Hewitt, entitled Peep Show was shown. This piece engaged with the gaze directed to the female performer. The work comprises startling endoscopic images of the vocal tract with synchronized audible vocalisation, and processed audio material from interviews with various female performers. The work deals with subject positions and relationships of power within the culture of popular music performance. The images and text alluded to the seen/unseen, real/imagined, felt/unfelt aspects of the audience/performer experience within this context. The transformations within these bipolar axes are mirrored by the transformations of sound and image within the work.
