Sonic Atlas is the umbrella title for a series of multilingual performance works by writer and vocal performer Caroline Bergvall. These feature vocal chorus, field recordings and song sequences developed in collaboration with composer, Gavin Bryars and a developing team of musicians, artists and poets based across Europe. Recorded conversations between scholars, writers, singers and speakers of various minoritarian languages form the basis of a treated electronic chorus within the performances, and ongoing contact in the form of discussions, workshops, etc. Each performance is carefully conceived and sited in partnership with its host venue.
