MERCY and LIVERPOOL BIENNIAL 2012 present
Electronic Voice Phenomena Weekend
A playful exploration of voice, technology and spiritual-otherness. Talks, workshops and new live commissions reveal the intersection of voice and technology as para-site of chaotic potential - where writing and generating, soul-searching, google-searching and divining, singing and processing are melded into a practice which transcends and complicates the human performer.
