Singing in a word of waves, wind and noise. An Australian perspective

For over 100,000 years the human voice has been one of the prime sources of emotion, communication, information and transcendence. Put these forms of expression together and it comes out as SINGING: a form of shared physical activity that is created and transmitted by all of us - in caves, clubs, clans, choirs, concerts, countries and even our cars! But now technology, politics, culture, and island continents are changing at supersonic speed. So the question becomes: how will we sing, who will we sing for, what will we sing, why sing, what will singing feel/sound like in the next 1,000 years? Continuing and broadening the discussion begun at ILV #5 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in June 2004, our Melbourne Festival panel provides a unique Australian perspective to discuss, theorise, fantasise, rant, chant, enchant, imagine, rave, debate, and disagree about "singing”.

Joining us for the forum will be:
SARAH HOPKINS overtone singer, worldwide choral composer
CRISTINA BRANCO singer of new fado
DAVID MOSS extreme vocalist
PAUL GRABOWSKY composer, multimedia theatermaker
plus surprise guests from the ILV and Melbourne Festival line-up
