Walking in nature, immersed in the vast sounds of early morning birdsong. High up in the canopy, a breeze gently rustles the leaves in waves of shimmering, all-encompassing magical sounds above. The cool wind awakens exposed skin relaxing into her beauty. Grounded on the earth, the presence of a world awakening, brought to life, and an invitation to surrender to the stunning surroundings of the natural world.
This work is an exploration of vocal textures and sonorities, moments expansive and vast, and also, distinctly present, personal, and intimate, and bringing us all in close, safe, anchored in our grounded bodies. It seeks out the essence of magical beginnings through voice, space, breath, and embodiment.
