Drawing from an expanding palette of innovative sounds, these musicians instrumentalize breath, mouth, and vocal chords to engage the physicality, variation, and sensuousness of the non-lyrical voice. C. Spencer Yeh (Brooklyn) and Stine Janvin Motland (Oslo/Berlin) improvise and compose, using the voice as a sound-making device that lies outside of speech acts and traditional modes of singing.
Established artists among a younger generation of experimental musicians, Motland and Yehâ€™s practices have historical precedence in movements of musique concrete, and perhaps sound poetry. Their use of non-linguistic vocal sounds in composition and improvisation may be compared to the approaches of concrete poets, who sought to elevate text above that of an impartial actor within the communication process.
Performance 7-8pm (seating begins 6:30pm)
Free with museum admission. Space is limited. First come, first seated.
