Miika Hyytiäinen: The Voice Map – compose for the person, not for a soprano!
The Voice Map is a tool that supports communication between a singer and a composer.
The creator of the Voice Map method, composer Miika Hyytiäinen, demonstrates it with the analysis of the singer N.N’s voice and composes for her live on spot.
Hyytiäinen has used the analysis method in his opera, Voice Box. We will see some of the most striking and funniest clips of this experimental music theatre piece.
In connection with the Uniarts Helsinki Research Pavilion in Venice, the Sibelius Academy is organising a Nordic research symposium "Encounters, Discussions, Experimentations: Art, Research and Artistic Research in Music” together with its partners, the Arne Nordheim Centre for Artistic Research at the Norwegian Music Academy and the Academy of Music and Drama at the University of Gothenburg. The two-day event focuses on music and the multifaceted interrelationships between music and research, as well as artistic research in music. One of the aims of the event is to generate Nordic collaboration to foster the planning and organising of research symposia/conferences and research projects as well as publications.
The Research Pavilion is created and hosted by Uniarts Helsinki, and realized together with the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and the Swedish Art Universities’ collaboration Konstex in co-operation with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Zurich University of the Arts.
