Flora (1989) di Tod Machover è un brano audio/video in cui la parte audio è una sovrapposizione ed elaborazione della voce del soprano Karol Bennett.
Ne risulta un contrappunto dal sapore un po’ arcaico che evolve in nuvole di suoni elettronici e moduli ritmici.
Commissionato dalla Fuji Television, la parte video (non disponibile qui) è stata creata dal computer graphics artist Yoichiro Kawaguchi.

This piece was composed by Tod Machover in 1989, on commission from Fuji Television in Tokyo, and as a collaboration with Japanese computer graphics artist Yoichiro Kawaguchi. The music does not attempt to slavishly follow the content or progression of his video; rather it uses Kawaguchi’s astonishing mixture of abstract, synthetic images and organic, life-like evolution as a metaphor for the musical composition, where melodies become splintered, and voices turn into electronic clouds and snap back again into lively rhythmic punctuations.
