Here is a brief video of the Feral Choir having a quick practice run for tomorrow’s concert. This was in 52 Roscoe Street during today’s Living Market.
Its not just a workshops series, you can enjoy the concert, just watching and listening.
NOTE THE UNUSUAL STARTING TIME FOR A FRAKTURE EVENT 7.30 PM
Feral Choir Concert
“Conductor Phil Minton, with his arms raised and face scrunched in concentration, twitched with trancelike intensity as he led the Feral Choir performance last Saturday night composed of hisses, pops, growls, barks and nearly every sound humanly possible.
The choir started with an eerie growl or hum that wavered between the sound of buzzing bees and wind rustling through the trees. The looks on audience members’ faces ranged from indecision to genuine fascination. Minton used gestures as crazed as the sounds the choir produced. His motions appeared to embody every sound made by each performer allowing all to resonate through him” (excerpt from our links page:)
“I recently saw the Feral Choir in Italy: it was the most moving and profound musical experience of my life” John Butcher: recent Frakture soloist
