Voice, Music and Narrative

Pure Research 1 – Martin Julien

Research focus

Nightswimming’s first Pure Research session was at Toronto’s Theatre Centre between April 28 – May 14, 2003.

Martin explored the impact of live vocal on the uses and meaning of narrative within a theatrical context. What exactly can sung music communicate in a theatrical landscape? What functions can live music fulfill with regards to narrative or character meaning in a theatrical setting?
