VoiceScienceWorks Writing for the Voice Workshop

Part 1: Writing for the Voice with VoiceScienceWorks
August 2nd and 3rd, 2018 9:00am-5:00pm
First Congregational Church, Los Angeles

Concepts from voice science, vocal acoustics, and sound perception translated into directly accessible composition tools

In the first two days of this workshop, we will explore the vocal mechanism in depth, guiding you into a thorough understanding of the complexities of vocal acoustics and anatomy. The voice has more sound and color options than any other instrument, making voices the most flexible instrument for composers. With every concept we explore, you will practice writing music in order to experience ways to apply the concept within your own process. We'll explain the impact of range, stylistic choice, vocal colors, and extended techniques, and how to create opportunities for singers to excel. We will play with exciting new software and technologies to gain a deeper understanding of vocal overtones and timbral possibilities, and look at ways to notate your scores to ensure that singers are more likely to achieve the sounds you have in mind. Brand new research will be presented on sound perception and psychoacoustics that blows the possibilities of vocal writing wide open. We'll help you begin to access this research to open your creativity into new realms. Fahad Siadat, director of See-a-dot Publishing, will also offer a window into the publishing process, and talk about the importance of notation in communicating with singers.

Participants are welcome to attend via video chat. Email us at [email protected] for more information.

SOLD OUT C3LA Composer Reading and Recording (Sold Out)

Part 2: Professional Choral Readings, Recording, and Feedback Session

August 4th and 5th, 2018
First Congregational Church, Los Angeles

Work through your compositions with pioneers of new music, Los Angeles’s Contemporary Choral Collective C3LA

Participating composers will have a chance to hear a piece of their choosing workshopped in the Choral Collective model, sing with the ensemble, and receive feedback from the collective's seasoned composers, conductors, and singers. They will be assigned to a C3LA composer for specific feedback prior to the weekend to begin the conversation. The session will be recorded, as will a full run of the piece, for your future use.

C3LA is a unique chorus that is operated collectively by its singing members, functioning not only as a presenting ensemble in its own right, but also as an ongoing workshop and recital chorus for the emerging composers and conductors who form the core of the group. It is the third organization of its kind, patterned after C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective in New York, and its sister organization, Triad: Boston's Choral Collective. C3LA is one of the few choral groups in the nation to focus exclusively on the music of our time, performing music written only within the last twenty-five years.
