A TALK WITH MICHAEL EDWARD EDGERTON
We would like to invite you to an artist talk with Michael Edward Edgerton
Michael Edgerton is at the forefront of vocal exploration by extending the technical and expressive capabilities of voice through the use of voice science and psychoacoustics. This approach has earned Mike considerable renown for those interested in the present and future of modern (experimental) voice.

Michael has received prizes for his compositions, including in 2007, the prestigious Kompositionspreis...

Obviously, a text set to music cannot have any melodic structure but the melodic lines must follow the tones that give the words their meaning....
