INTER-VOICE is a pedagogical experiment for individuals and groups of singers that dissolves relational boundaries between teaching and learning, performer and audience, the improvisatory and the compositional, our interior and public world/s. We are Learning to Sing in old theaters, in parking lots, in temples, museums, and rehearsal spaces!


One's voice is a lifelong companion, and cultivating it entails subjective processes for each of us, including those of the imagination, the subconscious, and the improvisatory. Inter-Voice allows the ongoing discovery of such processes as we relate to our own voices and to those of others—redefining the notions of talent and skill as we draw on various vocal techniques, meditation, and performance histories—in real time. All experience levels are encouraged.


INTER-VOICE is also the name of a draft text synthesizing scores, online sources, and a series of open-form exercises that act as a composite for vocal instruction.


The first INTER-VOICE workshop took place at "Schema for a School" with artist Asad Raza, along with Jeff Dolven, and D. Graham Burnett as part of A Prelude to the Shed in May 5, 2018. Then in Jan 13, 2019, it was expanded at Mount Tremper Arts.
