Abstract:

  • Talk about her work and the potentialities of the female voice, having written several electroacoustic works that explore the creative, erotic and spiritual potential of the female voice. Operatic convention allows the female voice to be the most beautiful, to soar to the greatest heights and with the most freedom, but the price for this is high, often the death of the character. Unlike the opera heroines who transgress musical and social boundaries, and therefore must be destroyed, Wende’s characters are never tamed.
