The 50% PhD seminar of Felicita Brusoni’s doctoral project “A Voice Beyond the Edge”. It will be a discussion between Juliet Fraser (soprano specializing in contemporary music) and Brusoni. Starting from the overarching research question, “what do extended vocal techniques represent today?”, Brusoni will discuss (and dismantle) the term “extended” and recontextualize vocal behaviors typically referred to with that term from a broader and more ecologic perspective.
