Voice Technique & Improvisation
MUSC 429
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

The ensemble is structured as a singing workshop, focusing on technical and artistic development. The warmup regimen covers breath support, resonance, diction, range extension, and expressivity. These skills are applied to group and solo projects which emphasize improvisation and collaboration, culminating in a performance of Syntactical Ghost Trance Music, a system for spontaneous composition developed at Wesleyan by Professor Emeritus Anthony Braxton. Ensemble members will have opportunities to use electronics to expand the scope of vocality.
