Saturday 10 June – Late-night recital: Voice Electric – Lotte Betts-Dean
- This event has passed.
Lotte Betts-Dean mezzo-soprano
n.b. Leeds Conservatoire is the Box Office for all Festival events.
Mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean sings works for solo amplified voice with electronics, from groundbreaking 20th-century works by Scelsi, Feldman and Schwitters to 21st-century pieces that draw on medieval plainchant, experimental hip-hop and breakcore, including works by Mathis Saunier, Stuart MacRae, Linda Buckley and Erin Gee.
Receiving its highly-charged début at the Aldeburgh Festival last year, Voice Electric is in part a tribute to Lotte’s lifelong fascination with electronic music, as well as a reflection and celebration of the medium of solo voice and fixed electronic audio in modern composition.
Voice Electric explores the vivid colours of the amplified human voice as it oscillates between ambience and stillness, words and sound, light and dark, wild and calm.
Join us in the Howard Assembly Room’s Kino bar for what promises to be an extraordinary event.
