About the Workshop:
I offer a workshop around the use of the voice as a liberating music instrument. Voice as a tool to ground in ancestral practices as well as to explore societal and futurist narratives. Drawing from deep listening, healing embodied practices and the genesis of language, we’ll embark on a collective journey through vocal exploration. We'll use vocal technique, listening, toning and phonemes as tools to approaching each of our own instrument and the way we can relate and weave our sounds to space and to each other. As each of us seek, and express our unique voice, we contribute to collective empowerment.
About the Artist:
Anaïs Maviel is a vocalist, percussionist, composer, writer and community facilitator. Her work focuses on the function of music as essential to settling common grounds, addressing Relation, and creating utopian future. Involved at the crossroads of mediums - music, visual art, dance, theater and performance art - she has been an in-demand creative force for artists such as William Parker, Daria Faïn, Shelley Hirsh, César Alvarez, Steffani Jemison - to give a sense of her eclectic company. As a leader she is dedicated to substantial creations from solo to large ensembles, music direction of cross-disciplinary works, and to expanding the power of music as a healing & transformative act. She performs and teaches extensively in New York, throughout North, South & Central America, and Europe. Her solo debut hOULe, out on Gold Bolus Recordings, received international acclaim, and she is the 2019 recipient of the Van Lier Fellowship which allowed her to further develop her composition language for voice and mixed ensemble, premiering new works at Roulette Intermedium in New York City.
