Everywhere in the world, the voice connects us. We speak, sing, listen and move each other with the vibrations of our voice.
Everywhere in the world, the voice connects us. We speak, sing, listen and move each other with the vibrations of our voice. What touches us in the voice? What does the voice touch?
At a time when religious traditions are often seen as a divisive element of modern society, the Genetic Choir is developing a project that brings together both religious and non-religious Amsterdammers, celebrates the voice as a connecting element, and challenges city-dwellers to listen through the ears of a different context.
How does a believing Muslim experience the voice, how a believing Christian and how a non- believing concert goer? When does the voice touch something that we have no words for?
The (Non)Corpus project will start in 2019 with a series of do and think encounters, for which we invite all interested Amsterdammers, starting with this laboratory in the Dominicus church on 23 June. We will facilitate first listening experiments and conversations, and you can work yourself with voice and sound this afternoon.
Additionally, you will have the possibility to register yourself to become more involved in this project in the autumn of this year. In collaboration with mosques, churches and Pakhuis de Zwijger, (Non)Corpus organizes public workshops, meetings and concerts in October, November and December.
Become a “guide” for the Genetic Choir in his search for the essence of the human voice!
