Our 'Joyce whisperings' were based on extracts from "Finnegans wake". 2 I suggested ways to deal with the text; concrete whisperings of text, whisperings obstructed by the hands, inhaled or exhaled in unpredictable patterns, whispering through an instrument, imitating speech with an instrument, stretching and changing the chronology of the text, and free sound explorations. It should all be at a balanced whispering or barely voiced level. The approach is similar to our "Soto l'imperio" improvisations. We suggest ways of relating to a literary or a musical text, and the detailed composing is done by the musicians.
