Leila Bordreuil presents Voiles, a performance piece featuring vocalist Charmaine Lee.

About

This piece, which incorporates cello, voice, electronics and an assemblage of different amplifiers, is part of an ongoing exploration of sound distortion achieved solely through the process of amplification. Using old, deteriorating cassette tapes found outside of churches in Brooklyn, New York and Flint, Michigan, Voiles specifically focuses on decay, and the distortion that arises from the aging of electronics. Damaged recordings of sermons, funerals, and accounts of personal struggles are obscured by new layers of sounds recorded on broken or under-powered cassette recorders. Along with these veiled recordings of past lives, Bordreuil and Lee will be experimenting with various amplifiers to enhance the great variety of textures and timbres that can be produced through the amplification of their respective instruments.
