Voices Inside comprises the debut CD release of electroacoustic and live-electronic works by Irish based Brazilian composer Victor Lazzarini. The album contains a variety of music, ranging from vocal explorations to a Jazz-inspired eulogy to John Coltrane. These works portray,mosaic-like, the eclectic nature of Lazzarini's compositions, a meeting point of various musicalstreams and interests; the contemporary and the ancient, the technological and the primeval.
Victor Lazzarini was born in Londrina, Brazil. He began his musical studies at the local conservatory and his first contact with composition was at the winter courses of the Festival de Musica de Londrina as a pupil of Aylton Escobar and Claudio Santoro. He read music at Campinas State University (UNICAMP) as a composition pupil of Damiano Cozzella and Almeida Prado and, following graduation, was awarded a scholarship to pursue postgraduate study at the University of Nottingham, where he obtained his doctoral degree in 1996. He is currently Senior Lecturer at the Department of Music and director of the Music Technology laboratory at NUI Maynooth. Major composition awards include the Hallward Composition Prize (1996) for his Magnificat, a large-scale work for voices, choir, instruments, orchestra and tape; and first prize at the 2006 IMRO/AIC Mostly Modern International Composition Competition for Dance of the Dawn.
