GlobalVoices: Multilingual Choral Project


For his major project at Birmingham Conservatoire, Franklin Heather has composed music that unpicks the babel and cacophony of voices, to celebrate and demonstrate how interpreting functions. His music documents and tells the story of the Interpreters at the UN, The Nuremberg Trials, the EU, InZone, the ICRC, NATO linguistic support and Court and Medical Interpreting. These people are both the linguistic and cultural bridges that connect nations to form global communities and dissolve barriers. Each choir member will sing in one of the 6 official languages of the UN, and the pieces will synthesise the languages with an ensemble and audio of Interpreters in action at meetings, and statements in all of the 24 languages of the EU.
