Presentation: "Voice as Body, Voice and Body"
At the Penn State 2021 New-Music Festival and Symposium, taking place virtually March 19-20 2021, at Penn State School of Music, I will present and perform my voice as body, and voice and body-my idiosyncratic performance grammar. The presentation will be held at 4:30pm ET on March 19. I am song itself.
Lecture-recital: "Circle hasu: My Art of Voice and Body"
I will present my lecture-recital, "Circle hasu: My Art of Voice and Body" at the McGill Music Graduate Virtual Symposium 2021, taking place March 12-14 2021 virtually, organized by The McGill Music Graduate Students’ Society (MGSS) at the Schulich School of Music in Montréal, Canada.
My voice arises from an association with my body movements. I generated a form where my transnational complexity which is the lens of my lived experience, and my nature-celebrating spirituality can tell stories from my site-specific presence. I will perform and show Circle hasu, and several examples of my art of voice and body, and voice as body, in my lecture-recital on March 13 at 6:30 EST, chaired by Lara Balikci.
Lecture-recital: "Voice as Body, Voice and Body"
I will present my lecture-recital, "Voice as Body, Voice and Body" at the Music and Movement Virtual Conference, taking place January 22-24 2021 at University of Pittsburgh.
In my lecture-recital on January 24th at 4pm EST, I will present my work Circle hasu, and show several examples of my art of voice and body and possibilities of switching between “voice as body” and “voice and body.” I will also discuss about site- and time-specificity in telling stories about different places from different time through my site-specific presence with and of my woman's body.
