On this occasion, we are exploring what voice and electronics can do to each other in ‘a dialectical play between the organic and electronic’ (Tim Morton, 2013). Does any sound establish a territory as quickly and as thoroughly as the voice? At the same time, is there anything more fragile and unstable than the sound of the voice? This holding fragility is the focus of the two new works for voice and electronics performed here for the first time.

The works address the potential of the voice as sound, and of sound as meaning. The grain of the voice – a cry, shout or song – sets a space of orientation by which meaning becomes possible. Yet, these meanings – and the voiced territory that grounds them – remain contingent, negotiable, welcomed, and misunderstood. The voice consoles and terrifies. (N.O Moore).
The here.here concert series, is a collaboration between bookRoom and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham, curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerle and Harrey Whalley, around their common research in extended, textual, visual, gestural and object scores and ways to integrate or experience technology in text/music/film/performances.
