Voice is Voices
Video installation opera about voice and identity
People listen to our voices to hear our identities, but sometimes we also use the voice as mask that hides our true selves. Our personal voice is intimate but at the same time fully public. It tells about our emotions, our lies, about sexuality and gender, physical condition and social background.
Video installation opera uses the tools of experimental music theatre and cinema to make the human voice the center of the drama. The operatic voice of the coloratura sopranos is the starting point but in this laboratory of details of the voice we hear that the voices and identities have many sides. Even the coloratura sopranos can whisper, sing low and softly or talk out their own opinions!
_Composer and librettist

The premiere of Voice is Voices video installation will be at the end of 2020 in Helsinki.
A version for video and orchestra is planned after that.
