Exploring the three-cornered network of interactions between the composer, conductor and singers

Recording project
University of Glasgow
About the project

The project brings the composer, conductor and singer(s) together in creating and performing a new composition that explores the potential of conductor-led vocal improvisation of different scales. The project originated from a compositional study in breathing and consonants, which investigates the management of breath in relation to different expressional and technical demands such as dynamic and tempo changes and the voicing of specific consonants. A conductor gives instructions on these demands on an improvisatory basis, and uses a set of conducting gestures or an electronic sounds generator as triggers.
