VOX TALKS

Public interview with invited artists

8.10.10: Moss & Wishart / 11.10.10: Moss, Hannigan & Zavagna

Have you ever wondered what goes on in the minds of your favourite singers while they are singing? Asked yourself what it is like to perform a solo vocal concert? Wanted to know how it feels to sing a specific song or a sound or text? Why sing? How do professional singers find their personal styles? What is the connection between words and performance? How do emotion, passion and intellect fit together in the human voice?  Vox Talks can answer these questions and many more, as wildly different and wonderful singers meet with you in an intimate atmosphere and talk about their voices.

Vox Talks #2:  Barbara Hannigan, Paolo Zavagna, and David Moss
The voice in contemporary music, the voice as an instrument, the voice as source and trigger for electronics…..
