Professor David Toop, UAL Chairs Present Series: Ecology of the Voice
Professor David Toop - UAL Chair of Audio Culture and Improvisation presents three extraordinary singers - Sofia Jernberg, Shelley Hirsch and Elaine Mitchener - who will be the foundation of an event that blurs the line between performance and conversation, asking questions about vocal performance in all forms of the voice as instrument and narrator, where the voice comes from within body, thought, language and ancestry and where it fits within an ecology of cultural and biological communications. As well as provoking the conversation, David Toop will be playing extracts from Lost Shadows, his acclaimed recordings of Yanomami vocal shamanism and ceremonies, released by Sub Rosa earlier this year.
This event is FREE and open to staff, students and the public.
