Trondheim Voices is in this performance exploring a new tool in their work with voice sound and improvisation. The ensemble is working with a tracking system for sound positioning to enable a given singer's position on stage to directly influence the sound processing, both spatialisation and effects. Through their improvisations and compositions they are exploring: a) The effect of the sound “following”' the singers' movements on stage. b) The flexible use of processed voice sound within the big vocal ensemble, through the control each singer gets over the sound output by moving on stage. c) The visualization of choices and changes regarding sound, both for the performer and the audience, through the movements of each singer on stage.
