‘I didn't expect such a sound to come out of such a small body. It was very impressive, she wanted to do the same with her voice: not to disguise it, but to dress it with other voices, her voice, her throat, as if another voice was coming from inside her, as if she were speaking, not with another, with herself, having a conversation, for example, about what disappears, from babbling to the last breath without passing through the middle, with a new everyone-voice, what would it be like? A mouth with many tongues, a ventriloquist who comes to us to multiply our voices, to transcribe the sound like when that leaf sounded like a twirler, as if it was telling us come on, let's go, its sound, that amplified experience, we had to draw the sound out of the ground, what does that mean? I don't know, it was like a breathing game, I was obsessed with feeling that sound, focusing attention on what you hear after singing, the throat clearing, the swan song with many tongues, the song that accompanies the moment just before going to sleep, doing it until we were voiceless together.’
