The grand motorway bridge Ponte 25 de Abril in Lissabon can be heard from far away; it emits a soft and pleasing sound, almost like the song of sirens. At first, I expected to find a giant sound art installation. This bridge was an inspiration for this conceptual piece to which the M+M Choir, consisting of 36 people, has lent ist voices. These 36 voices were recorded separately without a guide track, which resulted in a gradual detuning of the voices that a choir as a whole could never produce. It's astonishing how, by this process, the analogue sound of voices attains a more and more synthetic character. The resulting layers of overtones sometimes makes one think of an angel's choir appearing in the background and out of the monochrome a large variety emerges.
