Schreiben mit Stimmen

Factsheet

Situation

This research project will investigate hitherto neglected aspects of composing with or for voices using technical and extra-musical compositional processes. It will focus in particular on the practices of the Swiss composer Hans Wüthrich (1937–2019) and the (Ultra-)Lettrists in post-war Paris. It specifically asks how voices in non-traditional notation were treated in compositions, and what role they played in the overall compositional process.
