GEORGE CLINTON Vocal transformation excerpt

2013-2014. 55m.

Computer music for the ballet Shifting Geo choreographed by Erasga and Cocoon dance companies. Premiered at the Cultch in Vancouver (Canada), the 18th of February, 2014.

The work combines a variety of synthetic models including stochastic synthesis with transformations of phonetic samples coming from a wide a variety of languages, like this excerpt composed entirely through sound transformations of the voice of the funk star George Clinton. The composition develops using granular (retiming of phonemes) and non stander FOF techniques the natural groove-like quality and spectral depth of his voice.
