The alliance of voice and electronics has a history with numerous twists and turns, from the prototypes of the 1960's —the rumour of the Genoa factory composed by Luigi Nono—to the virtuoso artifices of Mauro Lanza or the introspection of Kaija Saariaho. Valérie Philippin guided young singers in the interpretation of this ever-expanding repertoire.
