"Intellectually stimulating and teasingly funny art of our time."
"This three-hour, precisely timed sound structure is a confusing, constantly moving deconstruction of language, voice and sound. […] The bizarre fascination that the spectacle has created will not get out of your head so quickly."
"Voice Box was full of tongue in cheek [...] that allowed the audience to fully join in."
"The avant-garde business trip to the green creates a situational border experience with a feel-good program."
"The audience […] experiences an masterfull musical performance, which is then deconstructed in an irritating sequence of events at different locations in a deliberately bizarre manner."
"Delightful and playful experimental opera from young Finnish composer"
"The most enthusiastic reception got 'ettette' by Miika Hyytiäinen"
"Genuinely avantgardistic German music theatre."
"Musically the performance is excellent."
"Miika Hyytiäinen has composed the score which is full of rich elements."
Since 2013, Miika Hyytiäinen has been working with graphic scores. With the generous support of Aalto University, the City of Helsinki and Genelec, he can now create this laboratory project that studies the possibilities of graphic notation as a language that could communicate between the art forms, finally even being a language that will allow Artificial Intelligence to understand music theatre holistically.
