Sensorium Ex: Voice beyond Language
Paola Prestini, Paul Fromm Resident in Composition, will be joined by Copenhagen’s Enactlab to discuss their interdisciplinary arts, research, and community project exploring fundamental questions of what it means to have voice, and voice beyond language. The project is centered around Prestini’s opera, Sensorium Ex, a multi-sensory narrative woven together at the intersections of disability and artificial intelligence. The conversation will be enhanced by contributions from the opera’s co-creators, poet Brenda Shaughnessy and choreographer/dancer Jerron Herman, and a musical performance by cellist Raphael Bell.
The event will be held in English.
