Master of Voice - Lisette Smits

A collection that looks at the role and use of the nonhuman voice in art.

The (non)human voice has always been part of modern art, notably within performance art, sound art, and conceptual art. The Master of Voice graduate program mutates from this history, examining the voice as a unique "discipline." The focus is on the (non) human voice, as a means to an end or an end in itself, within artistic practice. A special orientation of the Master of Voice curriculum, codeveloped with a team of artists with a longstanding interest in the (non)human voice, is the voice in relation to technology and gender. This book captures a two-year-long period of research—of thinking, talking, sharing, learning, making, acting, and creating by students and teachers, artists, and other practitioners—to find possible answers and approaches to the question of the voice and its prominent role in our postindustrial society.
