Alongside being a musical form, fugue also refers to a disassociated, amnesiac state in which a person loses their sense of self and identity. So I decided to experiment with both meanings of the word. I took the phrase “this is a fugue of my voice” and explored variations of that sentence and effects to see if I could create something musical from the spoken phrase while attempting to evoke a sense of a fugue state. I hope to develop this idea further into a more complex piece of music that employs more specific fugue compositional techniques using spoken text.
