Open Session: A Sound Voice

Thursday 4 Jun 2020 3pm

Why is singing a human right? Why do unique sounding voices matter? What is the intrinsic value of a human voice?

Composer Hannah Conway and writer Hazel Gould explore how the voice is connected to identity, memory and societal perception with members of the laryngectomy choirs from Shout At Cancer, David Howard (Head of Electronic Engineering at Royal Holloway) and internationally renowned speech technologists Cereproc. The residency contributes to a UK wide cross-sector research project and R&D for a verbatim opera about permanent voice loss. The Open Session will include live performance and a Q & A with the creative team and participants.
