Again Kris McDougall

“Again” is an exploration of extended vocal techniques. Every sound object was derived from the voice of soprano vocalist Annie Jacques, recorded at the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall in Montreal, Quebec. Its composition nods toward early tape music and musique concrète, but with a modern twist. Sound manipulation techniques are intentionally minimal, with an emphasis on clarity of the source material. The tone of the composition is at times light and playful, and at other times dense and complex.
