soprano and Live-electronics

“Aliterações de Água” is a piece for solo soprano and live electronics, the material being built from the high register of an inharmonic spectrum. The text only appears halfway into the composition, and for most of it, only vowels are used. In terms of vocal production, this piece is about what is liquid, fluid and flowing and to achieve this, microtones are used extensively throughout the composition. The electronic part, all in real time, actively contributes to this idea of everything that flows like water, watercourse with different speeds depending on the topography.
