You are not alone

Duration: Total 32 minutes (7 Michael Jackson song covers)
The artists felt that they were hearing Michael Jackson's songs in every shop and public place they visited after the death of the singer. The artists then grew the desire to express the ubiquity of Michael Jackson's existence through his songs in many different languages as perceived phenomenologically by listeners, whose first language might not be English, all around the world. The artists translated Michael Jackson song's lyrics with their own linguistic abilities and incorporated help for the languages they didn't know. The synthesised vocalisation of the translated lyrics were overdubbed on Midi versions of the Michael Jackson songs.
The following people have helped on the translations for creating this work along with translations by Hyo Myoung Kim and Taryn Takahashi:
