  3. The Element Choir, led by Christine Duncan was one of our guest at Salon 21 on January 17, 2014.

    The Element Choir draws singers from a broad spectrum of styles, from concert sopranos to singer songwriters to sound poets to Japanese folk singers, composers and musicians. Christine Duncan and the Element Choir have developed quite a language of sound to draw from improvisation. The group works with both structured and non-structured elements, based primarily on a system of conduction cues. As an ensemble they explore textural and timbral sound qualities, soundscapes, rhythmic patterns, sound poetry, musical genre interplay, and extended voice techniques.
