Monsters I Love: On Multivocal Arts
Stockholms konstnärliga högskola, Operahögskolan.
2019 (Engelska)Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt) [Forskning på konstnärlig grund]
Abstract [en]

Proposing a ‘multivocal practice’ in the vocal arts, this exposition (documented artistic research project) embodies an inclusive approach to four core categories for the contemporary performance voice: the singing, speaking, extended and disembodied voice. The culmination of a four-year PhD project in the Performative and mediated practices, with specializations in choreography/film and media/opera /performing arts, it documents artistic research sub-projects through the presentation of multimedia material, interweaving performance recordings with reflection and informative threads. Multivocality addresses various models of virtuosity, all of which are informed by a multi-faceted artistic knowledge, whether experimental or experiential, technical or technological, improvisational or compositional. Contemporary vocal performance practices are loaded by questions pertaining to detecting and solving technical issues that bridge the vocal terrains. Through a range of artistic practices—vocal, oral, bodily and technology-related—the research project unfolds what is conceived as a bountiful ‘vocal imaginary’. When voice and body meet technology-related practices that aim at the expansion of the vocal realm by using custom and gesture-controlled live electronics, a performance æsthetics of the in-between emerges. This is explored via the ‘strophonion’, formerly built at STEIM in Amsterdam and, during the course of the PhD, further developed by Berlin-based software programmer Sukandar Kartadinata who created an intricate configuration on the basis of the audio processing application Max/MSP. Through the formulation and performance of ‘The Manifesto for the Multivocal Voice’—a ‘discursive solo performance act’ that aims to provide insights into principles and premises, and to develop the discourse on the politics of today’s performance voice—the exposition attempts to establish a potential theoretical and philosophical grounding for multivocality. Meanwhile, its second major concern relates to the poetics of the voice, investigating the thresholds of highly individualised vocal practices by asking: what are the boundaries of and where is the performance voice today? The exposition (on Research Catalogue) comprises video and audio documentation of public live performances, lectures and artists’ talks as well as studio productions and rehearsals. The user is invited to study scores and varied texts, such as poems, extended programme notes, translations, performance instructions, comments and other reflections. But central is the collection of essays and articles guiding the user through the edifice of ideas that the artistic research project has unveiled.

Abstract [en]

Proposing a ‘multivocal practice’ (German: Praxis der Vielstimmigkeit) in the vocal arts, the doctoral research project embodies an inclusive approach to the four core categories of the contemporary vocal art performance: the singing, speaking, extended and disembodied voice. Multivocality addresses various modes of virtuosity, all of which are informed by a multi-faceted artistic knowledge, whether experimental or experiential, technical or technological, improvisational or compositional. The project is driven by the investigation of the voice’s boundaries within the field of vocal performance art as of today. On the basis of the highly subjective approach to the vocal arts through the researcher’s own voice, the posed question is what the performance voice could be and sound like rather than just asking what it is or represents. Either by extending the potential ranges of the multi-register voice or by examining the in-between and the unknown of an interdisciplinary and interdependent approach to oral, vocal, bodily and technology-related practices, the performance not only uncovers that these idiosyncratic practices are informed by additional questions pertaining to technical issues to bridge the vocal terrains, but also unfolds what is conceived as a bountiful vocal imaginary.

Moving Tongues: Playing Space comprises also a distilled version of the Manifesto for the Multivocal Voice which depicts a ‘discursive solo performance act’ to provide insights into developing the principles, premises, politics and discourse of the contemporary performance voice.
