The voices of Ensemble Medulla open up new artistic grounds in the context of contemporary experimental music. Based on a somatic understanding of the group sound, the five singers develop an intriguingly continuous sound spectrum, which allows them to shift between various vocal qualities with great ease. Medulla reintroduces the singing voice into the spectrum of the experimental voice and explores the transition between everyday voice and artistic expression.
Through the overlapping of voices far more than five solo voices emerge. This multiplication of voices in the group sound is what they call “a collective analogue storage”. The narrative unfolds in the tension and interspaces of a sound journey through various layers of time and cultural contexts. The creative resource of the ensemble consists of the professional artistic expertise of each individual within different fields (music, dance, performance, fine art, poetry and costume) and gives it a distinctive quality.
