Messa di Voce
Tmema / Jaap Blonk / Joan La Barbara

Messa di Voce (Ital., "placing the voice") is a concert performance in which the speech, shouts and songs produced by a duet of abstract vocalists are radically augmented in real-time by Tmema's custom interactive visualization software. Melding the unpredictable spontaneity and extended vocal techniques of two master composer/improvisers with the latest in computer vision and speech recognition technologies, Messa di Voce is intended to provoke questions about the meaning and effects of speech sounds, speech acts, and the immersive environment of spoken language, within the context of a sophisticated, playful, and virtuosic audiovisual narrative.

Tmema is Golan Levin and Zachary Lieberman.
Composers/performers: Jaap Blonk and Joan La Barbara.

Originally commissioned by the Ars Electronica Festival 2003, Linz. Produced with the generous support of SAP, la Fondation Daniel Langlois, Eyebeam Atelier, Ars Electronica Futurelab, Speechworks, the Rockefeller Foundation Multi-Arts Production Fund, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
