Roundtable: Verve and Fold: The Voice in Key(words)

With keywords including vibration, harmony, and synthesized, the presentations will proceed as a continuous conversation in hopes of presenting a dynamic stream of consciousness that can detail the convergences and divergences of the voice and its approximation in the symphonic worlds of the late 20th and 21st century.
