THE CONNECTED VOICE IN A SOUNDING BODY
July 16-18. 3 days.
In the course "The connected voice in a sounding body" we will focus on knowledge and methods to connect the voice to the body.

Teacher: Ruth Wilhelmine Meyer (NO)
Inspired by ethnic sounds, Norwegian folk music, classical vocal tradition and extended voice techniques from the avant-garde tradition, Meyer has developed a non-verbal vocal expression within a voice range of more than 6 octaves. In her projects, she often interacts with instrumentalists and vocalists of different expressions from different musical origins in concerts and scenic performances, films and sound installations throughout the world. Through these multi-expressive vocal sounds she creates soundscapes between the realistic/unrealistic and the expected/unexpected, letting t he sound itself be the storyteller.
