La Biennale di Venezia
Commissioned and produced by La Biennale di Venezia/ CIMM Venezia
Terminal is a multi-channel concert performance in which the performer uses her voice as a navigational tool to make spatializations of sounds of the sonic environment. The fact that her voice exerts control while being inaudible invites reflection on graduations and shadings of power in an audio landscape that explores issues of power, control, and self-determination.
The sound materials in this piece are to a large extend derived from interviews that the composer recorded with people that are close to her in different ways. Most importantly, her mother and her former composition teacher come to voice. In reflecting her relation to these voices and the impact they had, she is examining the structures of power that can be expressed through the voice in a personal narration.
