for voice & loopers (2017) 10.55′
»Doyouhearme?« was created in collaboration with the Swiss singer Franziska Baumann. The work explores the liminal zones that arise between breathing, whispering, speaking, singing and the gestural energy of the voice and are integrated in a strong emotional context. How exactly this context is defined cannot be predicted in advance, since the soloist creates her individual sound environment with the loop machine, making the emotional component dependent upon each performance.
