Drawing from the contemporary American tradition of collaborative vocal improvisation, this workshop introduces structures and forms for making vocal music together out of thin air – by listening the thin air and the songs it carries. Wild, challenging, beautiful; emergent, sacred, worth devoting a life to, for some of us. This is vocal challenge at its peak.
Briony has been leading voice workshops since aged 11. She now teaches and performs vocal improvisation internationally. She teaches weekend, week-long and now a year long course to intermediate and advanced vocalists; with her California-based quintet, The Elements, she recently released the world’s first ever entirely improvised 5 voice album.
