Extending the Vivacious Voice: Uluzuzulalia, The Voice Trunk and Voice Bubbles - Touring Phase
Optional Fields
Toured an upgraded version of Uluzuzulalia, while developing two new part products from its conceptual frameworks [an installation for the Winchester Science Centre (www.thevoicetrunk.com/what-is-it/) and and iPad App]. All of these put children's extended voices at the core of sophisticated intermedia experiences. See www.yourvivaciousvoice.com for project details. The iPad app can be downloaded for free at www.voicebubblesapp.com/try-it-out/. These works have directly reached more than 350,000 persons as far. The live performance has been on a national, 29-day tour. Before coding updates, the app was rated at 4.5 stars on iTunes. The installation 'The Voice Trunk' was selected by Universities UK as an example of excellence in public engagement with practice-led research in the arts and exhibited at the National History Museum in June, 2014. Four Keynotes, several conference papers, invited symposia talks and round tables have resulted from this work. Significant educational materials were developed for children in KS1&2 music and science. The work is now the subject of data collections as an impact case study.
