Janneke van der Putten presents a performance about the limits and possibilities of the human voice in interaction with a portable sound system, called the Voice-Skin. Unconventional vocal techniques and spatial resonances are mixed with electro-acoustic sounds emitted through loudspeakers mounted on the textile surface of the Voice-Skin. The Voice-Skin is a performance intended to be experienced in the same physical space as where it is performed. Due to the movements of the vocalist, the direction of the sound changes constantly. In addition, the sound is enhanced by the shape of the Voice-Skin and by the architecture.

The project is a collaboration with multiple composers, designers and the vocalist-performer. Get an impression of the electroacoustic parts of Werner Durand’s composition Heart Sines here ( and Philemon Mukarno’s composition Surat-Surat Perang here ( The other participating composer is Sajjra Xhrs Galarreta, who created the work Larynx Lux ("Luz Laringea") for the Voice-Skin and van der Putten's voice. The work explores trance effects through throat singing and glottis attack, combined with the listener vocalist's exposure to intervals of silence and oto-acoustic emissions played by the mobile speakers.

Voice-Skin is a production for voice and electro-acoustics performed by Janneke van der Putten (NL), with compositions by Werner Durand (DE), Sajjra Xhrs Galarreta (PE) and Philemon Mukarno (NL). Portable sound system designed by Jesse Howard (US) & Arden Rzewnicki (US). Photography by Gabriëlle Barros Martins.
