Vocalism
For SATB and electric piano.
Vocalism is a part of Schizophonia - a 50 minute work for three 'remote' ensembles and electroacoustic media composed for the 10th anniversary of Norway's ILIOS Festival. Schizophonia uses ISDN communications technology to bring together three simultaneous live performances in different locations, creating a fourth virtual performance on the Internet.
Coordinated by a continuo group of three soloists and performed by wind, string and choral ensembles the music addresses fundamental conflicts in the spread of digital communications alongside issues of acoustic ecology. The score makes reference to R. Murray Schafer's The New Soundscape, and sets words from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, Sean Cubitt's Digital Aesthetics and Esther Dyson's Release 2.0.
