About this composition:


Instrumentation: mezzosoprano and live electronics (three microphones: one with echo; another with reverberation; and another just dry)

Written in 1988, this work freely plays with a text by Eduardo Galeano on a free adaptation, in order to produce different meanings with the same words. The performer uses three different microphones (one with echo, one with reverberation, and one just dry) in a showlike theater piece, producing her own accompaniments. The text is written in colloquial Venezuelan accent where the word "vojm" (voice) comes from.
