The Extended Voice

maulwerker performing music

Three world premieres, composed for the individual voices of the Maulwerkers, will be created in close collaboration with the ensemble. Margarete Huber will create a cartography of the Maulwerkers' vocal potential and catalog the individual sounds. Her composition will thus become a portrait of the group. Andrea Neumann will consider the voice as a whole-body phenomenon. Composed gestures and vocal sounds encounter the electronic feed in ever new interplay. Boris Filanovsky processes the Russian attack on Ukraine; his piece has no text, only phonemes. The world premieres are flanked by two repertoire pieces: Travis Just's Quintet alternates sung notes that create beats with noisy fricative textures. Rebecca Saunders' O uses the monologue of Molly Bloom from James Joyce's Ulysses; Saunders transfers the linguistic-musical virtuosity of the text into a solo of existential power.
