Erin Gee Featured at the Resonant Bodies Festival

Now in its fourth year, the Resonant Bodies Festival showcases contemporary vocal performers who curate their own concert programs—allowing for a wide variety of repertoire and musical styles. Held this year at Roulette, Resonant Bodies' closing night features the premiere of a new work by PSNY Composer Erin Gee, performed by soprano Charlotte Mundy alongside the TAK Ensemble. On the Resonant Bodies Podcast, Mundy discusses her curatorial choices with festival director and soprano Lucy Dhegrae. Check out the podcast below. 

Kate Soper Closes 2015's Resonant Bodies Festival with Members of Wet Ink

Since its founding in 2013, The Resonant Bodies Festival has been the premiere venue for the performance of new vocal works in New York. Tonight at Roulette, the festival concludes with a trio of vocalists performing repertoire from around the world, and across the spectrum of contemporary compositional styles. Our very own PSNY composer Kate Soper is featured in tonight's performance, closing out the festival with selections from Ipsa-Dixit (2010-2015), a musical theater piece that "explores the treachery of language". Accompanied by members of the Wet Ink EnsembleErin Lesser, flute; Josh Modney, violin; Ian Antonio, percussion—Soper's work uses texts from sources as varied as Plato, Lydia Davis, Wittgenstein, and Freud. Two sections from Ipsa-Dixit are available from PSNY, both duets between voice and another instrument: Cipher, for voice and violin, and Only the Words Themselves Mean What They Say, for voice and flute.
