Sing to Me and I’ll Tell you My Story

I’m collaborating with composer and sound artist Adam Hart on an interactive piece, called ‘Sing to Me and I’ll Tell you My Story’. It’s an installation, with the idea that participants will walk into a circle of loudspeakers, each playing a different overlapping vocal line, asking them to sing. If they sing the vocal line back accurately (how accurately is currently under discussion!), then the piece moves to a “verse” which tells the story of a real person, rewarding participants, as it were, with their story. Musically, of course, it’s a question of generating material which will work when looped and overlapped. Adam, I’m glad to say, is handling the technical side, and we’ll demonstrate the pitch recognition set-up and trial the piece at a public lecture at the University of Salford on October 30th. In the meantime here’s a taster
