Artists Voice/Sound Lab (AVSL)
First meeting on Saturday, September 11th, 2010
Led by Juliana Snapper
Calling Los Angeles artists working with voice: Hone your chops, develop your ideas and get those ideas realized!
HOW IT WORKS
The group will meet at Machine Project in Echo Park where we will:
1. Experiment with, and realize ideas brought in by individual members
2. Perform and/or document those works for a specific artist’s video, installation, performance, etc.
3. Listen to music that blows minds and inspires
4. Cultivate our abilities as individuals and as a group to make powerful and wide-ranging vocal sounds.
Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to have a great voice or read music. This is not a choir! It is a sound collective. Think: Glee! + Imperial Orgy + AACM + Post-war horror movie choirs + Brian Eno’s sing-a-longs + Mieskuoro Huutajat + whatever you put in…
