“I have performed vocal portraits in various contexts since 1998. The basic situation has remained almost the same; a person sits on the chair and says his/her name, I cover his/her eyes and voice the portrait, using the phonemes of his/her name. The concept of portrait is a bit misleading. I don’t describe the person on my chair, with my voice, but play with the phonemes of his/her name instead. I haven’t invented a better title though.”
