Who we are?
VoxLAB is a not-for-profit organization that promotes newly written vocal repertoire and music dramatic works by offering public concerts, workshops, seminars, practical research, and network building. VoxLAB was established in 2014 with the aim of developing new vocal repertoire and creating an intergenerational and interdisciplinary community for composers, vocalists, lyricists, and other performing artists who are dedicated to exploring vocal techniques from many different traditions.
Development of vocal and improvisational skills and vocal composition is central to VoxLAB. We have held improvisation workshops with distinguished experimental composers such as Phil Minton, Pauline Oliveros, Pamela Z, Franziska Bauman, Limpe Fuchs, and workshops in vocal techniques such as overtone singing, Sami Joik, and the Luo Vocal techniques of Kenya. We have held the summer workshops “#OccupyOpera” in new opera and group composition for young people from diverse backgrounds, and workshops for voice and technology, including real-time sampling and live audio processing.
