VITAL VOX: A VOCAL FESTIVAL explores the myriad power of the human voice in its solo and ensemble forms across a multitude of genres. This three day festival is in its 2nd annual appearance and will occur on November 11, 12, and 13 2010 at 8:30pm at the ISSUE Project Room at the Old American Can Factory, 232 3rd Street, in Brooklyn, NY. (F/G Subway to Carroll St or F/M/R to 9th St./4th Ave.) Tickets are $10 ($9 in advance) and ca…n be purchased at www.issueprojectroom.org or by calling 718-330-0313. VITAL VOX (www.vitalvoxfest.com) celebrates composer-performers in the vocal arts who stretch and expand the voice in new and original ways, continuing a strong contemporary tradition developed in the United States.
With international influences springing from such countries and regions as Taiwan, East Timor, Slovakia, Africa, South India, and more; genres ranging from jazz, experimental, contemporary, free improvisation, “noise” music, and abstract solo opera; and themes ranging from “maintaining one’s composure”, to cinematographic music theater inspired by the life, films and death of the German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder, VITAL VOX has wide ranging scope and appeal.
