Collect/Project: The future of Song

Shanna Gutierrez, flute; Frauke Aulbert, soprano

Made possible in part by the Goethe-Institut

Collect/Project is a project involving a pool of today’s best contemporary music interpreters, versed not only in classical and experimental performance techniques but also in popular and folkloric music traditions. Performances push the artists’ creativity beyond what might be considered normal boundaries and often recreate or rearrange a work in new ways, while still serving the original creative intent of the composer. “The Future of Song” explores what the ancient tradition of song means today. Shanna Gutierrez and Frauke Aulbert’s program includes the haunting and beautiful melodies of Japanese folk tunes, the subtle and powerful gestures of breath, and surreal vocal effects.
