Hearing Voices

Listen to music from composer John McGuire based on the sounds of one soprano voice (his wife) multiplied, refracted and superimposed to create a choral fantasia.  Also, hear music from Christine Baczewska, who explores the voice as instrument, similarly incorporating multi-tracking to create textured, overlapping choruses. Plus, music by Laurel MacDonald and Paul Lansky’s “Idle Chatter,” and more.
