A Solo Voice
Evolving over the last six years, A Solo Voice by Odeya Nini is an investigation of extended vocal techniques, resonance and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. The work is a series of malleable compositions and improvisations that include field recordings and theatrical elements, aiming to dissociate the voice from its traditional attributes and create a new logic of song that is not only heard but seen through movement.
Tickets: $18 General Admission
$15 Members, Students, Seniors
Odeya Nini is a Los Angeles based experimental vocalist and contemporary composer. At the locus of her interests are textural harmony, gesture, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, in works spanning chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrète. Her solo vocal work extends the dimension and expression of the voice and body, creating a sonic and physical panorama of silence to noise and tenderness to grandeur.
Odeya has collaborated extensively with dancers, visual artist, filmmakers and theater directors as both a composer and soloist and has worked with artists such as Lucy & Jorge Orta, Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, and LA’s contemporary orchestra – Wild Up.
Odeya’s work has been presented at venues and festivals across the US and internationally, such as The Hammer Museum, REDCAT, Joyce Soho, Art Basel Miami and the Banff Centre, from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Canada, Mongolia and Vietnam. Odeya has lectured as a guest artist on contemporary vocal techniques and composition and leads workshops on voice and movement.
