Various Authors - Spectres IV: Mille Voix / A Thousand Voices

Fourth issue of the annual publication dedicated to sound and music experimentation, co-published by Shelter Press and Ina GRM – Groupe de Recherches Musicales. It’s bilingual in French/English; all content is in both languages.

The voice is everywhere, infiltrating everything, making civilisation, marking out territories with infinite borders, spreading from the farthest reaches to the most intimate spaces. It can be neither reduced nor summarised. And accordingly, when taken as a theme, the voice is inexhaustible, even when seen in the light of its very particular relation with the sonic or the musical, as is the case in most of the texts collected in this volume. There is no point therefore in trying to circumscribe or amalgamate the multiple avatars of the voice. We must rather try to apprehend what the voice can do, to envisage its landscape, its potential effects.

—Extract from the editors’ forwords

La voix est partout, elle s’infiltre, fait civilisation, dessine des territoires aux frontières infinies, s’épand depuis les confins jusqu’au plus intime. Elle ne se réduit pas, ne se résume pas. La voix, prise comme matériau thématique, est tout autant un continent inépuisable, même quand il est mis sous la lumière de sa relation particulière avec le sonore ou le musical, comme c’est en grande partie le cas dans ce livre. Inutile, donc, de chercher à circonscrire et amalgamer les multiples avatars de la voix. Mais essayer, plutôt, d’appréhender ce que peut la voix, d’envisager son paysage, ses efficaces.
