brussels vocal project // modern tales cd release
Brussels Vocal Project is a collective of three singers, Elsa Grégoire, Anu Junnonen and François Vaiana. They create projects which focus on original vocal music. They aim to expand the vocal possibilities through collaborations with different singers, instrumentalists and composers. In this project they invite Sarah Klenes, Gabriel Hahn and drummer Moritz Baumgärtner on stage.
Brussels Vocal Project has been collaborating with the American drummer and composer John Hollenbeck (who was at Werkplaats Walter with his fantastic Claudia Quintet earlier this season) on material written exclusively for five voices and a drum set. John Hollenbeck and Brussels Vocal Project want to revisit this ancient orchestration through compositions based on modernized popular tales.
After spending one week of residency at Werkplaats Walter working on this new material and creating a dramaturgy together with Marie Vaiana, they will present this new repertoire on their brand new cd Modern Tales, which will be released on Radio France.
