FREE THE VOICE
The Voice is an instrument that radiates from the soul, resonates in the body, and is pure energy and touch. Harnessing the energy of the Voice is a strength that is felt deep within ourselves and heard loudly outside of ourselves.
This workshop is dedicated to Vocal Expression, sensing the voice, feeling and understanding the physicality of sound, freeing our minds of preconceived ideas of song, and realizing the transformative healing effects we have on ourselves and others when we use our voice with intention and love. Both through introspective work and outward playfulness, we will explore the voice as an instrument that radiates from the imagination, body and movement, not limited to conventions of language, but rather able to convey myriad forms of communication.
You are free to come to drop in or come to all sessions. Our series with conclude in a performance on Saturday, November 2, with participant involvement. Come play, shift, listen, explore and Free The Voice!
Odeya Nini is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary vocalist and contemporary composer. At the locus of her interests are textural harmony, gesture, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, in works spanning chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrète. Her solo vocal work extends the dimension and expression of the voice and body, creating a sonic and physical panorama of silence to noise and tenderness to grandeur. Odeya has collaborated extensively with dancers, visual artist, filmmakers and theater directors as both a composer and soloist and has worked with artists . ensembles such as Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Lucy and Jorge Orta, The Industry, and Wild Up.
Odeya’s work has been presented at venues and festivals across the US and internationally, such as The LA Phil, MONA, The Pulitzer Arts Foundation and the Banff Centre, from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Mongolia, Madagascar and Vietnam. She leads vocal sound bath meditations, and teaches workshops and retreats for embodying the powerful Resonant Voice.
