A year and a half in the making and many more years of process and development, Vougheauxyice is finally coming to life. This album is a series of compositions and improvisations for solo Voice, partly including field recordings. The work explores a spectrum of textures, tones, dynamics, expressions and relationships.

Odeya’s work as a vocalist includes a large physical component of movement and of bodily expression. This album has been crafted for an aural experience, and therefore:

The album release event will consist of a (very) short live performance, and will mainly be a listening party. We will all lay on the ground and allow the sounds of the album to tickle our ears from beginning to end.

Odeya Nini is a Los Angeles based experimental vocalist and contemporary composer. At the locus of her interests are textural harmony, gesture, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, in works spanning chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrete. As a vocalist she is devoted to redefining vocal interpretation and song through an exploration of extended vocal techniques and how they communicate in conjunction with the physical body’s language. Odeya has collaborated extensively with dancers, animators, film makers and theater directors, including Meredith Monk, Lukas Ligeti and Butch Morris. Her works have been presented at venues and festivals around the US and internationally such as the Whitney Museum of Art in NY, REDCAT, Joyce Soho, Art Basel Miami, and from Tel Aviv to Odessa and Mongolia. Originally from NY, Odeya holds a BFA in vocal performance from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, where she studied with vocalist Theo Bleckmann, and an MFA in composition from California Institute of the Arts.
