Surat surat perang

For voice and voice-skin



A sound experience for voice and (electro) acoustics A production for voice and electroacoustics performed by vocalist Janneke van der Putten(NL) with compositions by Werner Durand(DE), Chrs Galarreta (PE) and Philemon Mukarno(NL/ID). Interface-dress designed by Jesse Howard (US) & Arden Rzewnicki (US)

A sound experience for voice and (electro)acoustics’ presents a performance around the boundaries and possibilities of the human voice in interaction with the Voice-Skin, a wearable acoustic interface. Unconventional vocal techniques and spatial resonances are mixed with (electro-)acoustic sounds that are transmitted through the material surfaces and electronic components of the Voice-Skin. The movements of the vocalist will generate a spatial sound experience in which the listeners will immerse themselves.
