An Introduction to Extended Vocal Techniquesby Michael E. Edgerton, DMA, National Center for Voice and Speech.
This workshop is supported in part by the National Center for Voice and Speech.
This workshop will introduce extended vocal techniques found in experimental vocal music of the latter 20th-century and selected traditional music from around the world. The workshop will involve descriptions of what is occurring acoustically, anatomically and musically, and these descriptions will be paired with recordings and demonstrations. Attendees will be given the opportunity to produce these unusual sounds.
Dr. Michael E. Edgerton is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with the National Center for Voice and Speech, where he is conducting physiological and acoustical research on extended vocal techniques for a book on the contemporary voice, to be published by the University of California Press. He has an Extended Vocal Techniques Performance Group at the University of Wisconsin, and has been conducting workshops and seminars on extended vocal techniques for both composers and singers. The recipient of many prestigious awards, Edgerton is also a composer with works to be published by T.U.B.A. Press and C. Allen Publications. Edgerton holds the Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has taught composition at Yonsei University and was a Visiting Scholar at Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea.
