Wende Bartley


Letting the Light Through (Openwork), the Disc

For the composer, the title of the CD Claire-voie means “Letting the Light Through”. It also serves as a root for the notion of clairvoyance, the expansion of sensory perception. In French there is a play on the word “voie” which also sounds as “voix” or voice. All four works on this CD incorporate the notion of voice, exploring images important in the collective story of woman, developing new sonic boundaries while giving voice to women’s cultural experience. These works attempt to bring forward — to bring to light — a new consciousness of woman’s power, expressed in sonic metaphor.
