voice tales: an exploration on common & individual sound. 

30/07-03/08 2018 Impulstanz

Our work is rooted in traditional knowledge and follows objective rules that apply to such genre of music. In traditional world, singing is at the same time a act of speaking and of listening. The body as well as the strength of a song is the act of a community, even though it is carried out by one person who calls and gathers the other singers. When singing, one is always in relation, in constant negociation with what is here & now (the others, the soundscape…).

During these 5 days, we envision to explore different qualities of sound: common sound / individual sound / various resonating spaces in/of the body / relation to the acoustic space. Through the principles of polyphonic singingwe will explore the relation of the spoken and the sung voice, the individal and the common voice and the spatiality of the sound.
