| $20
Lesley-Flanigan---Hedera700px

To celebrate her EP release of Hedera (for solo voice and electronics), Lesley Flanigan presents a special concert of music for voice, spanning early to modern approaches for the human instrument.

Hedera introduces a new direction in Flanigan’s work with voice and electronics. In a driving performance that steadily unfolds over time, Flanigan shapes blooming clusters of her voice around a continuous beat of shifting frequencies and intensity, tapping influences from Steve Reich to Mark Fell and Cocteau Twins.

The night also includes sets by:

C Spencer Yeh performing a live version of his album Solo Voice I-X.

Vocalist Daisy Press and Composer Nick Hallett debut the first phase of a song cycle based upon Hildegard von Bingen’s chants to Saint Ursula. Hallett’s outlook on Von Bingen’s 12th century sacred music is decidedly contemporary, bubbling over with electronic textures, while Press’s virtuosic interpretation ventures into Indian raga.

Avant-turntablist/sound artist Maria Chavez performing a special set for the recorded voice.
