Phonation 2 – Memoires (2016) for voice and electronics
Part of my doctoral project in composition, Phonaton 2 – Memoires, is an electroacoustic piece exploring the meaning of voice and vocal in my music. It contains the fragments of my vocal past – some of the most significant pieces of music, songs, and stories from my childhood. They are all read and sung, sampled and processed in tender memoire.
