While rhythm is the earth’s first instrument, the human voice is ours. We wail (most of us) straight out of the womb, we use it to express ourselves in so many different ways from the very beginning and through our lives. Sorrow, joy, ecstasy, tragedy, collaboration, humor, and more.
This edition of At Water’s Edge focuses on the voice in music in obvious and non-obvious ways. The music you’ll hear on this program includes voices that are used as we are familiar with them, some include lyrics, some are spoken, others are sung, many are highly altered and heavily processed.
