Manon de Boer

CD, stereo, BE, 1998, 6'45"

Three short monologues of different people speaking Spanish, Dutch and French were first recorded and later given to an Anglophone singer (Alison Goldfrapp). She was asked to listen and vocally interpret this material. Not understanding the languages, she did so on the basis of tone, rythm and intonation.
