Voice and live electronics
with Francesco Chiantese
An organism acts and reacts to external conditions and to its own needs. Due to those complex behaviors, a living apparatus appears to be extremely fascinating and generally unpredictable.
Melus Vociferans connects generative sound to one of the most characterizing element of human identity: language.
Here, voice is both mother and rival of the electronics. Through real-time analysis and elaboration of the prosodic characteristics of the actor’s voice – such as amplitude profile and speech melody, a synthetic soundscape is generated. After the genesis of sound, voice and electronics start to influence each other, exploring the possibilities of a human-machine relationship.
