Where Is My Voice?
Helena Cánovas Parés (1994*)
(UA, 2022) for recorder trio
"Starting from a common unisono, we move in this piece with different registers, moods, and instruments towards individual loops, which however transform very precisely into common gestures. There we find ourselves again on a path where the voiceflute increasingly mixes with air sound and whispering until it finds itself in our own voice.
"The voice flute is an instrument that is rarely used in contemporary musical language and was therefore the starting point for the creation of this piece. As a composer, I am constantly searching for ideas, a voice, and a space in which to hear it. This piece stays in the process of that search and embraces its vulnerability, fragility, and chaos as part of the process."
