David Moss



David Moss is considered one of the most innovative singers and percussionists in contemporary music.  He has performed his solo and theater work from New York (Lincoln Center) to Venice (Theatro La Fenice) to Brisbane (Festival). In 1991 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship; in 1992, a DAAD Fellowship (Berlin).

Moss has sung with the Berlin Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle, and made his Carnegie Hall debut with the American Composers Orchestra.  He was twice a featured soloist at the Salzburg Festival.  He sings in Heiner Goebbels’ orchestra work Surrogate Cities and Helmut Oehring’s monodrama for orchestra, POEndulum.

He was a 2008/09 fellow of the  Interweaving Performance Cultures” research center at the Freie Universität, Berlin.

Moss is co-founder/artistic director of the Institute for Living Voice , which conducts master classes, workshops and seminars internationally.

He is artistic director of the MADE Festival in Sweden, and artistic director of the all-volunteer choir, New Babel Sounds, a project of the Neuköllner Oper, Berlin. He performs with the electronic groove trio, Denseland, and the audio performance group, Technologies.  






The voice is a combination of muscles, air, passion, mind. And singing is the delicate but sharp vocal dance of surprise and desire that can take us out of our bodies. Here we work on shaping melody, carving a solo, caressing a tone, plus ways to energize a texture, taste the next note, and inhabit your voice. Over 3 days each participant creates, develops and performs their own vocal sound-story, in solo, duo, and ensemble work.   


Singing: The Seventh Sense is for singers, non-singers, actors, musicians, composers, artists, architects, dancers. 


Max. 14 participants
