This article considers the problems and questions raised by collaborative text-setting. The author considers the connotations of the word 'set', outlines the collaborative project Voiceworks, and considers notions of equivalence and translation in combining words and music. She comments on Pisaro's translations of Egger, offers a theory of cross-arts collaboration drawing on the work of Deleuze, and suggests how performance practice might unsettle traditional text-setting techniques.
