Exercise 1

Olivia Salvadori, An Invisible Ode (Act One)

there is always a margin of the unknown that emerges within the quality of any sound, beyond the characteristics of its source. operatic voice, electronic and percussions investigate the relationship between physical sources, musical forms and pre-performative rituals.
