An early tape composition in which the sound of the voice was the primary source material, adapting text from James Joyce’s Ulysses, spoken and sung by vocalist Kathy Berberian. Berio applied tape editing and mixing techniques to modify the sounds electronically, paying particular attention to the envelopes—attack, sustain, and decay characteristics—of the result. The work is an example of early work composed at the RAI studios in Milan.
