Bethany Younge

Younge is a composer of both acoustic and electroacoustic works with extensive collaborative experience with video artists, poets, and sculptors. Many of her acoustic works seek to mimic both speech and sound poetry with instruments while also dissecting words to reveal individual phonemes, illuminating a world embedded with complex semiotical relations between the spoken word and what is interpreted to be "music." She collects speech recordings [titled: Recitation Archives] that have characteristics of sound poetry, often elaborated to create complex textures by the use of electronics.
