Penn Composer's Forum presents



Voice is the Original Instrument

JOAN LA BARBARA’s career as a composer/performer/soundartist/actor explores the human voice as a multi-faceted instrument expanding traditional boundaries in developing a unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques: multiphonics, circular singing, ululation and glottal clicks that have become her "signature sounds, influencing several generations of composers and singers."


pre-concert lecture by Maria Murphy, PhD candidate, Musicology
