Imago
Website: 06 Apr 2007
By: MichaelStrohmann


http://joreg.ath.cx/imago/makingof_sound.html

Michael Strohmann and Dietmar Bruckmayr used Kyma for live vocal processing in their work Imago. The original idea was that the voice of a singer/performer should be the sole generator for everything that happens to that voice. Digital machines dismantle, transform and duplicate his voice and ultimately merge it in its frequency domain with other sounds. This recursive relationship between voice and machine leads to a successive dissolution of the difference between analog and digital sound sources for the listener and the singer. Although the singer remains outwardly the creator and authority in charge of the acoustic events, the purported expansion and enrichment of the vocalized expression ultimately turns into manipulation and estrangement.
