ODEYA NINI is a Los Angeles based experimental vocalist and contemporary composer. At the locus of her interests are textural harmony, gesture, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, in works spanning chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrete. As a vocalist she is devoted to redefining vocal interpretation and song through an exploration of extended vocal techniques, resonances, and how they communicate in conjunction with the physical body's language.
Odeya has collaborated extensively with dancers, choreographers, animators and film makers as both a performer and composer, taking part in works by artists such as Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Maureen Selwood, and the Yelleb Dance Ensemble.
Her work has been presented at art galleries, museums, concert halls, festivals and under the open sky, around the US and internationally such as the Whitney Museum of Art in NY, REDCAT, Joyce Soho, Art Basel Miami, and from Tel Aviv to Odessa and Mongolia. www.odeyanini.com
