ABOUT FONEMA CONSORT
Consort : a group of instrumentalists and singers performing together
Fonema : (Spanish, phoneme) the smallest unit of speech, which distinguishes words according to their sonic qualityThese concepts define the essence of Fonema Consort, as we endeavor to bring to light and expand the repertoire of 20th and 21st century works for voice(s) and instruments; and live out our fascination with the exploration of vocal possibilities in music, including the traditional presentation of a text, the breaking down of words into phonemes, or the total absence of words and the ramifications thereof.
Pieces for female voice + flute, double-bass, clarinet or cello.
Voix de Stras', dir. Catherine Bolzinger and Fonema Consort featuring guest mezzo-soprano Kayleigh Butcher.
Pablo Chin, Clara Olivares, Morgan Krauss, Ivàn Solano, Mauricio Pauly, Heitor Parra and Nikolett Burzinska
