BETWEEN ROOMS AND VOICES
City Hall, Portland, Oregon
Between Rooms and Voices is a site specific vocal performance composed by Ethan Rose and featuring Portland's Flash Choir.
Drawing from the tools of electroacoustic composition, this work renders the sonic opportunities that are made available through the medium of recorded sound into a physically realized articulation.
Synchronized Ipods provide each performer with a set of distinct instructions that guide their vocalizations and movements throughout the rooms, stairwells, and alcoves of City Hall in Portland, Oregon. The Ipods function as the fulcrum between recorded sound and physical performance, facilitating the acoustic blend of voice and architecture into unified moments of sonic transformation.
