Close Music for Bodies; an immersive, participatory voice work, will premiere September, 20-24th 2017 as part of the Curated FringeArts Festival. Using his embodied voice practice Personal Resonance as a generative process with an ensemble of 9 performers, Michael will collaboratively create a piece of acoustic sound and movement for an audience occupying the performance space. The piece will culminate in audiences learning aspects of Personal Resonance so that they may join the work, resulting in a public act of group voice.
