My composition Word of Mouth will be part of a collective sound installation for the Música Viva Fringe Festival 2013. The installation runs 16th November 2013 – 5th January 2014 at the CAAA Centre for Art and Architecture Affairs, Guimarães, Portugal.
“The installation offers visitors an immersion into distinct soundscapes under the theme of “text-sound composition”, originally selected by Miso Music Portugal for the 2012 Sound Walk/Garden”. More info here
Word of Mouth is fixed medium work (4′) that uses the human voice as the only sound source. Structurally the piece uses gestural phonemes to project a range of non-linguistic vocal sounds on the breath, which are extended and woven together to evoke metaphorical and spatial associations.
