GIRRL Electrovocal Performance

WHEN : 21st March, 6:00 – 7:00pm
WHERE : The Glasshouse

Donna Hewitt has been creating works for voice and technology for the past 15 years, starting out with fixed media works for processed voice and developing her practice into cross media and real time performance contexts.

In this seminar, she will present an overview of her eMic projects. The eMic (Extended Mic stand Interface Controller) is a sensor based gestural controller for vocal performance and live electronics that has attracted significant attention internationally. It provides the vocal performer with a responsive interface in which they can control digital audio processing parameters in performance.

Donna will talk about her compositional approaches for new performance interfaces and the challenges in creating work for the electronically extended voice.
