Mixed creation for choir, recorded voices and electronics
The «Belle équipe» is an amateur vocal group. The composer, Sébastien Béranger will write specifically for their voices, record them, transform this sound material, and then design a custom-made score where the choir will sing with the electronic metamorphoses of itself!
The project title “Mirrors||Echoes” reflects this desire for dialogue between acoustic singing and its transformations by the machine.
