About the book
The 61 pages that make up the score for Tztztztzt Î Í Í … were interpreted and performed by three vocalists: Ben Vida, Tyondai Braxton, and Sara Magenheimer. Utilizing envelope following, vocoder analysis and trigger sensing the recordings of these performances were analyzed and converted into control sources. These control sources were used to activate analog and digital synthesizing systems and functioned to trigger envelopes and gates, determine pitched materials and act as modulating sources for frequency and amplitude modulation. Though the voice of the performer becomes almost completely obscured through this process, all rhythmic patterns, compositional forms and musical gestures were derived from the vocalist’s performance – the voice remains an intrinsic element of the final synthesized tracks.
