Cannonball (Miami, FL) and Machine Project (Los Angeles, CA) invite you to join voice researcher and radical opera singer Juliana Snapper in a free, public workshop exploring ways to use Voice in your art. Her three-hour workshop, Beyond Words: How to Incorporate Your Voice in Art, begins with the question: What is the thing-ness of Voice? Forget language for a second; forget singing. Imagine the human voice as a material substance – a thing you can feel and shape that connects bodies and maps spaces. What are the possibilities?
This workshop offers techniques for getting past the terrible vulnerability of voice and concrete ways to begin working with it (your own voice and other’s) as a sculptural and interpersonal medium. Croaking, shrill, deaf, and tuneless bodies are especially welcome. Juliana Snapper has taught voice for over a decade and given several workshops specifically for performance and media artists. Her own work almost always involves roping non-singers in (An opera with Ron Athey, a choir of lemmings that hum the water’s surface, the People’s Microphony Camerata with Elana Mann…).

Snapper’s workshop and public performance, Double in the Bubble, are part of a new collaboration between Cannonball and Machine Project, offering three Los Angeles-based artists research residencies at Cannonball and the resources to create new performance-based works in response to Miami. Participating artists include Corey Fogel, Asher Hartman, and Juliana Snapper. This collaborative project is generously supported, in part, by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
