Lap-dog Machines: Pre.sa.uro is a sound composition-installation-performance intended to explore translation processes through technology. Three case-specific electroacoustic systems “Lap-dog machines” were especially developed to electrify and transform voice and text in real time: Spatial Sampler, Vocoder Rupestre and Poliglota Type Machine. The sonic-literary machines aim to build a bridge between technology and performer, using pre-recorded text, voice improvisation, singing, recitation, real-time sound transformation, electronically generated sounds and sound spatialisation.
