Voice Workshop: Tanya Tagaq & Christine Duncan
October 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:20 pm
The Adaskin Series in partnership with the Victoria Symphony
Tanya Tagaq, Adaskin Visitor, 2017
With Christine Duncan, Director, Element Choir
Tanya Tagaq and Christine Duncan lead the UVic Chorus in an improvisation workshop exploring texture, timbre, rhythmic patterns and extended vocal techniques.
All are welcome to attend to participate or observe.
Canadian Inuk experimental vocalist and artist, Tanya Tagaq, won the Polaris Prize for best Canadian album in 2014 and has played to major festivals and packed houses all over the world. Tagaq blends throat singing with electronic, classical, punk and rock music. Her latest album, Retribution, is a complex, political portrait of a world in crisis.
Christine Duncan possesses a five-octave range, and while she performs a wide range of styles with ease — from opera to soul music — she is most in her element with free improvisation.
Tagaq and Duncan will also participate in a discussion, Creative Collaboration in the Music Industry, hosted by Dr. Patrick Boyle at 2:30PM in Rm. B037, MacLaurin Building, B-Wing.
