The Voices from Within into the World is a creative vocal workshop to explore the voice in its manifolds of sonic expressions and its relation to space and to each other. Through games, vocal and body exercises, improvisation structures, sonic meditations, and conducting arrangements we’ll explore the capabilities of our voices conceptually and experimentally, the acoustic relations to space, and how the voice connects us to space and to each other. This workshop runs from 11am until 7pm, closing with an informal performance at 6:30pm. Registration will be available soon, and will be announced through our email list at indexical.org.

Indexical presents Elder Ones, a quartet led by vocalist, harmonium player, and composer Amirtha Kidambi. Kidambi fuses the ecstatic and revolutionary free jazz spirituality of John and Alice Coltrane’s later work with her own background in Carnatic and Western classical vocal techniques. Her quartet includes Max Jaffe on drums and his custom Sensory Percussion electronics, Matt Nelson on soprano sax and synthesizer, and Nick Dunston on bass, and is anchored in free jazz even as it pushes into new futurist realms.
