Conversations with my Voice explores the sounds and memories that return to a singer during a live performance. It is a conversation with her inner voice which is represented by a prerecorded nasendoscopy projected video image of her vocal folds – a virtual screen character in interactive engagement with her in performance.
The conversation between the real and the virtual is about the conflicting positions of singing within particular stylistic contexts – Jazz – Opera – Pop – What is real what is acted? What is serious? What is funny?
