Messa di Voce

In Messa di Voce [to put the voice], the speech, shouts, barks and songs produced by a duet of professional abstract vocalists are radically augmented in real-time by custom interactive visualisation software. The performance will touch on themes of abstract communication, synaesthetic relationships, cartoon language, and writing systems within the context of a sophisticated, playful, and virtuosic audiovisual narrative.

Messa di Voce lies at the intersection of technological and human performance extremes, melding the latest in computer vision and speech recognition technologies with the extended vocal techniques and unpredictable spontaneity of two master composer / improvisers. Utterly wordless, yet profoundly verbal, Messa di Voce is designed to provoke questions about the meaning and effects of speech sounds, speech acts, and the immersive environment of language.
