Videovoce, a Toronto-based performance project integrating live vocals
with electronics and video, was conceived in 2008 by longtime collaborators
singer/composer/video artist Laurel MacDonald
and composer/sound designer Phil Strong.
The project features MacDonald’s spellbinding voice and visuals
and Strong’s distinctive sonic signature, and has been presented at festivals
such as NXNE and Summerworks in Toronto, MUTEK in Montreal,
and Sound Symposium in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
“lilting, otherworldly vocal experiments and lush, complex arrangements...
like the work of some avant-garde dream team”
- Brent Raynor, NOW Magazine
The song is Òran na h-Eala (The Song of the Swan) a traditional Gaelic folksong lyric from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, with music by Laurel MacDonald.
The music is an adaptation of Vox Nostra Resonet, a 12th century choral work. Binaural audio recording is by David Travers-Smith, and video documentary footage is by Chris Sankey.
