White letter to Jonathan Uliel Saldanha
The voice and the circular rhythm are foundational elements of this vocal collective that explores the intersection of contemporary music with hypnagogic vocal states. Formed by the artists Catarina Miranda (Portugal), choreographer, who uses her voice as an essential component of her work; Clélia Colonna (France), singer, performer and researcher of Eastern and Mediterranean polyphonic singing; Ece Canli (Turkey), artist who works with expanded vocal techniques. This vocal research is organized around a circular pulse system, where the three voices are interrelated through visual codes and gestures, starting from the rhythmic matrix for dynamics of reaction and mutation. Ritual chanting, hypnosis and contemporary voice practices are synthesized by the female vocal machine.
