The West Coast premiere of Sarah Hennies’s hour-long prepared-piano solo SOVT (2017), performed by Richard Valitutto.

SOVT (semi-occluded vocal tract) refers to a vocal relaxation technique wherein one speaks with one’s mouth partially closed, usually closed around a straw. The simple backpressure of the straw allows the vocal folds to vibrate more easily and with reduced physical exertion. The technique helps rejuvenate tired voices, and warms up the human instrument. Unbeknownst to Sarah when she chose the title, SOVT is also a military abbreviation for System Operability Verification Test. For the duration, the piano is muted with reusable adhesive blu tac across almost all the strings. This softens the instrument’s timbre and increases the presence of sympathetic vibrations as each string is more connected to those adjacent to it.
