ONLINE PEDAGOGY | workshop REC (((virtual polyphony))) -globalvoice- with Pía Sommer //

17 May ONLINE PEDAGOGY | workshop REC (((virtual polyphony))) -globalvoice- with Pía Sommer //

a physiological, theoretical and practical invitation about the sound system, the language and the recording of our voices in polyphonic format ___ bring your voice to the virtual space, we learn, dialogue and do a RECglobal.

session topics

physiology and phylogenesis of the phonographic apparatus
characteristics of listening and the acoustic space
de-machining of language
virtual laboratory: polyphonic recording 

This was a space for the synchronization of voices and interests on the subject of the VOICE in its virtual format. We reviewed some physiology and phylogenesis, to then de-mechanize the language and make it an invisible but therefore audible virus, palpable in its interference … we recorded our voices in a single virtual polyphony of 4 minutes and 28 seconds. A laboratory open to learning the plasticity of the voice, to the audible, sound and visual possibilities.

Voices: Llum Canut // Alex Loro // Paco Justicia // Ezequiel Díaz // Mireia Zantop // Marta Nieto Postigo // Christine Brault // Maribel Bravo // Pía Sommer
