  • ©, , Ellipsis, Icebreak

Artist Statement:


    Ellipsis is a work for female singer and tape which seeks to embody a ritual celebration of women’s spiritual power and psychological empowerment. Three imagistic cycles emerge: The Age of Darkness, Creating a New Space, and The Age of Resonance. The singer performs with a wide variety of vocal sounds, and the tape part is constructed from sampled acoustic string sounds, FM synthesis, and multitrack layering of the voice of Fides Krucker.
