“Ethno-cyberpunk diva. (Her) voice is a thing of wonder, ranging from lilting folkiness to speaking-in-tongues wildness.” -Richard Sanderson
Viv Corringham is a British vocalist and sound artist based in New York. Since the 1980s she has been singing a wide range of music that includes free improvisation, Greek Rembetika and spontaneously created songs. She has also been recording soundscapes in the many countries her sound and installation work has taken her. These various elements find their way into her live performances.
She works in several established groups, in ad-hoc groupings and also as a soloist.
She has performed with Pauline Oliveros, Monique Buzzarte, Gino Robair, Elliott Sharp, Lol Coxhill, Charles Hayward, Al Margolis, Maggie Nicols, Andrea Parkins, Eddie Prevost and Didier Petit among many others.
Viv will be taking a free Deep Listening workshop from 6pm-7pm
Deep Listening, as developed by Pauline Oliveros, explores the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary, selective nature – exclusive and inclusive — of listening.
Followed by a performance at 8pm
