Poems inspire electronic score

Aventa Ensemble performs VOI (rex) on Sunday, Feb. 8 from 8 to 10 p.m. in the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall at UVic

Philippe Leroux joins the ensemble Aventa in the performance of his hyper-virtuosic VOI (rex) in which live electronics seamlessly integrate the various elements of the score. Leroux’s treatment of the voice is unique; it triggers and instigates fascinating exchanges between the acoustic and electronic sound worlds. VOI (rex) was composed using poems by Lin Delpierre, taken from a collection entitled Le testament des fruits.

Victoria’s Aventa Ensemble includes soprano Helen Pridmore, Philippe Leroux on electronics, and conductor Bill Linwood. They will also perform Gordon Fitzell’s Evanescence and Zosha di Castri’s La forma dello spazio.

Aventa Ensemble performs VOI (rex) on Sunday, Feb. 8 from 8 to 10 p.m. in the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall at UVic. The pre-concert talk is at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the door.
