Neo Hülcker`s voice is breaking. For this special unique and nonrecurring time the composer and performer asked 16 friendly composers to write pieces specifically for his voice break as a birthday present.
A first part of these compositions will be performed by Neo Hülcker tonight – followed by a second premiere-night at ausland later this year in autumn that’ll feature the remaining pieces by the other composers.

In Henry Wilde’s pieces, the breaking voice is captured through laughter and the medical explanation of the breaking voice’s biological processes is translated into a graphical score. Andrea Neumann confronts Neo Hülckers voice with a larynx microphone that starts to develop a life of its own just as Neo Hülcker`s voice.
