” A suspended moment of sound coming from lived experience: dreams, thoughts, opinions, emotions, sensations, nourished by pleasures and conflicts. Past and future become present in sound leaving the body, sound coming into oneself. “
I base my philosophy on the essential relationship between professional creative work and the performer’s personal journey. I feel it is vital to propose clear principles and values in the work, allowing us to develop techniques and tools to explore the voice in depth. This process is as important to me as the end result or established goal. The question “How is your voice today?” intrigues me. Learning to sing where you are now, where your instrument wants be. Letting your sound guide you before you start reaching for the voice of your dreams.
