From the press:

The Folds of the Soul offers, from a very powerful individual perspective, original compositions and standards. Comprehending a wide musical spectrum…,it reaches a cohesive discourse of solid creative rigour, with a clear orientation to Avant-Garde Jazz. Sabrina sings with irreproachable technical display, and unusual expressive intensity.

Sergio Piccirilli – El Intruso

– For Spanish readers inteview by El Intruso:

A magic atmosphere which folds can only be crossed by the breath that becomes sound. And Lastman do it in a very tuned and delicate discovery of details. Her voice is impeccable. It seduces, grills, plays with contrasting images and irregular sonoric surfaces.

Alexander Laluz – Brecha

Sabrina es una artista que se propone indagar con su voz y arte mucho de lo inexplicable con palabras. Para alguien con visión existencialista bien puede caber la explicación de una búsqueda de la artista en su persona, desentrañando su propia existencia, en lugares cercanos o lejanos del alma. Para algún maestro o maestra en técnicas de canto la explicación sobre la búsqueda de la artista quizá la encuentre en su capacidad fonética, sonora y acústica, en el manejo de la evolución del sonido vocal, con una definición exacta en cada nota dada. Cual instrumento musical que marca la ruta, sobrevolando y escudriñando, entre los instrumentos “colegas” que la acompañan. Los “Pliegues” nos conducen a temáticas volcadas hacia “tónicas” jazzísticas, con fuerte predominancia del canto lírico contemporáneo. ¿El canto es su instrumento para navegar hacia las profundidades y pliegues del alma?. Seguramente en estos audios, que los invito a escuchar, Sabrina nos dará alguna pista. (Gracias Trasante)

Perpetual Folds: Voice Workshop

February 9 – April 13
Mondays 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Singing is a way of discovering oneself, a dialog with our inner self and an experience of communicating with others. The voice can take us to a deep journey of sounds, qualities, styles and expressions. For this journey to be healthy, energetic and artistic, we need an approach to the voice as an instrument, we need to learn from it and about it.

This workshop focuses on the development of the voice through breathing, body awareness and voice technique (pitch quality, range, support -physical strength-, emission & intonation). During these process we’ll work on collective singing, individual song interpretation, sound exploration and voice improvisation. Through work on body releasing and voice technique we bring our body/mind to a state of open and creative presence. Open to all levels.
