    The titles Skin and The Mouth denote interfaces between inside and outside with those respective body parts. And it is precisely these transitions that Rebecca Saunders homes in on in her vocal compositions. She wants to move from the surface of the sound “to the essence of the voice: the physical body that produces this sound.” The Mouth explores “the wide range of colors and sounds that are naturally produced in the oral cavity.” This involves “the gap between our secret inner monologue and the voice that is sent out into the world and heard.” Saunders has worked closely with soprano Juliet Fraser to develop fresh, new forms of articulation that go far beyond what is commonly called singing: the soloist whispers, susurrates, breathes. She sings as she breathes in and out, and her voice merges with the ensemble sound. But along with vocal works, our composer-in-residence for the summer of 2021 is also represented here by two instrumental pieces.
