Vox Loop-o (2011)


The work is both playful and reflective exploring the musical possibilities within edited sound and shifting between moods to reflect the complexities of the vocal material and human sound source.

The human voice presents diverse possibilities for the composer both in terms of a source material, but also (and perhaps more importantly) in terms of eliciting responses within audiences. Even when cut, looped and transposed to a significant degree, the human voice can still be recognised and interpreted by the listener. Thus transformations and manipulation can be more directly fused with conscious association in the perceived object and more directly elicit emotional responses within the audience.
