Six young composers from the Mediterranean compose pieces for voices in different spatial conditions. The compositional concept was to investigate new ways of bringing text and music together. Rather than ‘musicalizing’ and performing texts through music, the composers sought to let the music emerge from a different use or signification of the text.
The compositions incorporate gestures and movements in space as well as various devices which extend and modify the human voice. The concert will be held in the great hall of the Diplareios School, which will allow for different spatial configurations of the singers as well as an innovative approach to space-sound. The six composers exploit to the full that most flexible of instruments, the human voice, accentuating its physicality, its expressive immediacy, the fragility of communication and the acoustic mediation of a range of objects as well as of the venue itself.
