"Talkin’ Music is a performance exploring the sound of scripted words.
Writers and actors know the rhythm and order in composed words. Media like cartoons, plays, and radio news reports are all written to be heard, but they hold such different music in them. What makes these sounds pleasing?
And what happens when these melodies are in the hands of musicians?
Our musicians have been tasked with the following:
1. Choose an audio clip of a person speaking written words.
2. Compose an original piece of music containing the melody and intonation of the speaking.
