The Sounding Sea is an intersection of a technical exploration of vocal timbres and a reconnection to nature. It explores vocal qualities on string instruments using a suite of techniques that reflect different vowels, resulting in a series of contrasts: smooth and edgy, elongated and halted, muted and coarse. These vocal qualities are structured through the thematic lens of the ocean and expresses my spiritual connection to it – a collision of reinvigoration, grief, uninhibited expression and force. The timbres morph in wavelike motions, submerging and rippling: gentle, like calm waters out at sea; and jagged, like foamy waves crashing on rocky shores.
