Voz do Avatar, Voz como Avatar, Avatar da Voz
My article proposes an exercise of archeophony – or voice archeology – focusing, on this occasion, on the possibility of establishing the complex figure and imagining of the ‘avatar’ as a comparandum of the notion and representation of the ‘cyborg’. The gains of this comparison allow us to debate different objects, such as ‘the voice of the avatar’, the ‘voice as avatar’ and, finally, the archive of the vocal representations, ‘avatars of the voice’. Case studies under concise scrutiny include Spike Jonze’s feature film Her; fragments of the Bernardo Soares/Fernando Pessoa’s Book of Disquiet; lastly, the digital simulation of John Donne’s voice, accessible online as a result of the Virtual Paul’s Cross Project: A Digital Re-Creation of John Donne’s Gunpowder Day Sermon, based at the North Carolina State University.
