voices



year: 1993

ensemble: 2 channel tape

duration: 6'

first performance: 20/5/1994, stockholm

publisher : swedish music information center

comment:
voices is an intense piece, formed by the human voice, with fast fluctuations and without any real resting points. vibrating all the time it is up to one self to decide if it becomes meditating or frenetic.
a kind of a frozen scintilation.
voices is my first try in the electro acoustic field. in this piece i have worked with an accelerando - ritardando pattern that i have multiplied to obtain rhythmically unison choirs. against these choirs stands one contrasting solo part.
