Mortuos Plango, vivos voco
Composed by Jonathan Harvey in 1980, this electro-acoustic masterpiece blends together the composer’s son’s voice, a chorister, and the harmonies of the bell at Winchester cathedral (using CHANT software for the synthesized voiced created at IRCAM).
Thirty years after the premiere of Mortuos Plango, Vivos Voco, the Visual Kitchen collective has created a video installation inextricably linked to the musical story. The viewer-listener is invited to become one of the elements of the video-painting projected on the ground.
