"Timbre that is no longer measurable by hearing. As if the sound that surpasses us on all sides were the space that matures."
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Distant Song

Auscúltare is a mixed piece for two voices and ultra-directional speakers.

The composition questions the links between the human voice and sound environments. The synthetic sounds, diffused by the four ultra-directional loudspeakers, act here as a necessary counterpoint to the perception of acoustic spaces. 

The process consists in playing superimpositions between acoustic human voices and synthetic sounds projected in space. The one and the other extend, complete and tune each other, provoking a play of unheard-of timbres.
