Abstract

In ETCH extended vocal techniques, Yakut, open throat, overtone and Bell
Canto singing are coupled with live interactive sound processing and
manipulation. ETCH calls forth forna ­ building soundscapes of glitch
infestations, howler tones, clustering sonic-amphibians, and swirling flocks
of synthetic granular flyers. The visual content for this piece is created
in a variety of 2D and 3D packages. In ETCH video content is manipulated on
the screen by the performer using the same interactive protocols that govern
sound manipulation. Visual content is mapped to the physical gestures of the
performer and its live manipulation forms a significant part of the piece.
As the performer conjures extraordinary voices out of the digital realm, so
she weaves a multi-layered visual environment. In ETCH sound, image, and
gesture combine to form a powerful Olinguistic intent. Etch was created in
residency at the Confederation Centre for the Arts on Prince Edward Island,
Nova Scotia.
