In 2004 Barratt was invited by the United Nations to submit his work Karito (www.karito.org)
for an installation in the General Assembly in New York. Karito is an audio sculpture made from the national anthems of the member states of the UN layered upon one another, projected simultaneously from multiple sound sources.
The random juxtaposition of the various themes creates a new infinitely long piece,the structure and tone of which are determined by the listener's relative position within the audio sculpture at any particular time.
