Kate Moore’s Serrated Clouds

A vocal piece gains mass – and an edge

Netherlands-based Kate Moore has uploaded segments of her “Voiceworks.” They are beautiful pieces in which layered vocals, pitched high and thin, combine into something cloud-like yet with a serrated edge to it. The thinness keeps the overtones to a relative minimum, and allows the individual layers to be somewhat discernible as the formation gains mass. In a brief accompanying note, she explains it was performed by her at the Media Lab of University of New South Wales in Kensington, Australia, and in Paddington, Sydney, Australia. Moore earned her PhD at the Sydney Conservatory of Music.
