In this chapter I will look at how the use of live electronics can open up new roles for me as a vocalist, in the improvised interplay. Before I do this, I find it necessary to discuss some of the challenges that I experience in connection with singers’ traditional roles. Further, I will as a tool, suggest a very rough categorising model for the various musical roles that I observe myself taking on in my work. I will exemplify these roles through excerpts of my music in different constellations.
