Expressions of Interest are now open

HATCHED VOICES, with special guest mentor Jessica Aszodi, is an extension of Ensemble Offspring’s 2017 HATCHED ACADEMY – our emerging artist development program.

Ensemble Offspring welcomes EOIs from vocalists and curious musicians interested in voice, to participate in two short workshops with Jessica Aszodi as part of our September Hatched Academy sessions at the Red Rattler Theatre, Marrickville. 

Session 1

Session 1 is for vocalists and performers interested in using their voices. 

We will explore works and ideas from the new music canon and experiment with embodied vocal problem-solving to form nuanced realisations which we will workshop as a group. Ensemble Offspring musicians and Hatched Academy participants will also be in attendance at this session.

Session 2

Session 2 is for singers who will work directly with Jessica in a session on the solo vocal repertoire.

This session will focus exclusively upon solo work for the voice. Participants are invited to prepare one repertory piece (a solo by Feldman, Berberian, Cage, Carter, Berio, Babbitt etc), a new work, or something of their own devising to workshop.

The fine print. National applicants are welcome to apply however EO will not cover any travel costs. Coffee & tea will be served but no sustenance will be provided by the ensemble. Participants who agree to be involved will commit to attending full sessions. Involvement in this program entitles participants to complimentary attendance at the Wednesday night ‘Hatched Academy’ concert however there will be no official involvement in this concert.
