Myoelastic

Françoise Vanhecke performing Myoelastic, the piece i wrote for her of for ISFV soprano and electronics.

In the piece ‘Myoelastic’, written for an dedicated to Françoise Vanhecke, i tried to explore all possibilities of her ISFV singing technique, along with all kind of other sounds the voice can produce.
The piece starts out with natural breath sounds, which gradually become voiced and finally evolve a ISFV ‘muliphonic’ sound. In the next passage, rhythmic tongue clicking is alternated with different kinds of inhaling techniques, varying from pure sounds to multiphonics and heavily distorted sounds, also making gradual transitions in between them.
Next comes a passage with continuous fast arpeggio’s, alternating between normal and inhaling singing as a vocal alternative to circular breathing.
The piece ends with bocca chiusa inhaling chromatic descending lines, fading out into silence
