While EMERGE frequently works with – mostly female – singers to create source material for his works, this recording is very unusual as it exploits samples of speaking voices, combining them with sound objects with a metallic timbre.
The way in which the voices are cut and manipulated, erasing comprehensibility and instead using the speaking voice as a structural element of the composition, is very akin to experiments in radiophonic art, for example in Luc Ferrari’s work for radio. As such, this album documents an aspect of EMERGE’s artistic palette that has not been heard in recordings before.
