My Father Was a Ventriloquist was written in 2011 for Dr. Daniel D’Addio. The work uses an original text by the composer, incorporated into an electronics track based on manipulations (sometimes extreme and sometimes barely perceptible) of recordings of the composer reading the text and of Dr. D’Addio performing sketches of the live part.
