Hear small ensembles that use the voice as an instrument (often an electronic one) on this New Sounds program. 

We'll listen to the Scandinavian-Belgian trio of Mikkel Ploug , Sissel Vera Pettersen , and Joachim Badenhorst along with the German-American trio of Theo Bleckmann , Gary Versace , and John Hollenbeck , -Refuge Trio - in which both vocalists use electronic processing.  In a work called "Bright Moon," drummer John Hollenbeck's setting of Masahide 's text features Gary Verasce on the keyboard together with the voice of Theo Bleckmann.  Then listen to Electra , a new music quartet from Holland, and their rendition of music by Jacob TV - called "Able to Be, and interspersed with the voice of Marilyn Monroe .  These, and more.
