Lingua-Palatal #2 (e97), for 4 voices and close amplification

Michael Edgerton (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formArtistic work


Lingua-Palatal #2, has been totally recomposed in 2020, and is written for four voices that use close amplification to heighten the resonant differences between the oral and nasal cavities. This should be a very strong effect, as if the listener is actually inside the cavity. Therefore, special care must be given to the microphone type and placement. It might even be possible to put microphones inside the mouth to emphasize the differences between oral and nasal sounds.

As part of this investigation, the singers will produce small, unvoiced sounds that are usually left unheard. These sounds will be unnaturally present (loud); certainly similar, and perhaps even closer than a whisper in your lovers’ ear.
