Ori Talmon - Three Visits to Meun
Jenna Lyle - New work for moving/sounding body
Jenna Lyle with Jessica Aszodi - Grafter
Australian vocalist Jessica Aszodi and composer/performer Jenna Lyle will make a rare appearance in San Diego on January 28th at Space 4 Art. The centerpiece of the program is Grafter, a new, collaboratively devised work for voice and electronics by Lyle and Aszodi that incorporates amplified voices, bodies and live electronics. The performers interact using samples, both of their voices, choreographed movement and live processing. The piece places energetic focus on the body, simultaneously altering sonic outcomes through choreographic affectation. Additionally, Lyle and Aszodi will both perform solo pieces. Jenna will perform a self-devised work for her own moving-sounding body and Jessica will perform Ori Talmon’s Three Visits to Meun, which was premiered recently at Australia’s ‘BIFEM.’ Both Grafter and Meunreceived premieres at the Resonant Bodies Festival in New York City to great acclaim. The New York Times has praised Aszodi's "virtuosic whimsy" while the Australian media calls her simply "one of the finest actress-singers in the country" (The Age).
