Virtual Vocables Workshop: Add Your Voice with Shruthi Veena Vishwanath & Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees

Add your voice to the next iteration of Falling Into Language's soundscape, a film and art installation by Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees, currently on view at BCA Center as part of the exhibit Falling Into Language: A Travelogue. Workshop participants will view the film with its imagery becoming a catalyst to explore vocal sounding as an expression of individual connection to our cosmic origins. Participants are guided to make their own vocables* in response to the film's soundscape, and will have the opportunity to submit audio recordings to be used for the final iteration of the film’s soundscape.

*vocables: sounds that are linked to the larger web of relationships to land, place, and the non-human world – rather than to words and literal meaning

Singer, educator, and composer, Shruthi Veena Vishwanath, one of the musicians the artist collaborated with to create Falling Into Language's original soundscape, and Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees will lead a second workshop organized by UVM’s Crossroad’s Leadership Lab. Participant recordings from the workshop will be added to the final soundscape for the closing of the exhibition. All are welcome to join – vocal or music experience is not required to participate in this session.

Add Your Voice workshop series is co-presented with UVM’s Crossroads Leadership Lab.
