IL SUONO DELLE LINGUE

At the beginning of 2019, the cultural organization Delta Produzioni issued an international call for electro-acoustic works. Delta Produzioni has over 25 years of experience in organizing events and competitions that have involved thousands of participants from all around the world.

The concept for this call for works was to examine acoustic material that explores the sound of words. The works submitted needed to contain the specific phonemes (not necessarily set to a melody or harmonized) of the language of the composers, in order to create a sound-fresco based on the use of the words and their elaboration. The acoustic material, selected by a group of experts from the 209 compositions received from 36 countries, is now available on CD.

Kenneth L. Field is an American composer, based in Dillon, Montana.

Both The Beatitudes and Nothing is Accomplished consist of manipulated recorded speech from multiple languages. fifty seven one, on the other hand, is written for 16 vocalists spread out in a single arc who each have individual parts consisting (for the most part) of only phonemes.
The special arrangement of the singers lends itself to spatial effects. His works Nothing Is Accomplished (2018), and Grattage for Prepared Piano, Voice, Appalachian Dulcimer & Central American Flute (2019) were choreographed by the Vytal Movement Dance Company and performed in Merce C in Spokane, Washington on May 9 & 10, 2019.
