Voice Affairs initiates and stages artistic dialogue: The project connects – in the version for the Darmstadt Summer Course – the Neue Vocalsolisten with musicians from Lebanon and Egypt. Sound Art, improvisation, avant-pop and electronic music meet in various ways the “voice”, which plays a special role in the music of the Mediterranean region. Panos Aprahamian connects these works through video sequences that oscillate between documentary film and science fiction in which he explores the phenomenon of the voice. Between immediate expression and instrumental artistry, it stands paradigmatically for our relationship with our natural and technologically shaped environment. In a combination of concert performance and video installation, the project is a grand narrative about the diversity, contradictoriness, explosiveness and poetry of the Lebanese cultural space.
