WILD UP | DARKNESS SOUNDING | VALITUTTO PLAYS HENNIES | SOVT
Wild Up, Richard Valitutto, Sarah Hennies
8:00 PM @ Cal Perc
1965 Blake Ave
Ticket Price: $25
The West Coast premiere of Sarah Hennies’s hour-long prepared-piano solo SOVT (2017), performed by Richard Valitutto.
SOVT (semi-occluded vocal tract) refers to a vocal relaxation technique wherein one speaks with one’s mouth partially closed, usually closed around a straw. The simple backpressure of the straw allows the vocal folds to vibrate more easily and with reduced physical exertion. The technique helps rejuvenate tired voices, and warms up the human instrument. Unbeknownst to Sarah when she chose the title, SOVT is also a military abbreviation for System Operability Verification Test. For the duration, the piano is muted with reusable adhesive blu tac across almost all the strings. This softens the instrument’s timbre and increases the presence of sympathetic vibrations as each string is more connected to those adjacent to it.

Wild Up | darkness sounding | Satsang 1 - Nini | Voice Bath
Wild Up, Odeya Nini and Christopher Rountree
7:00 PM @ Craft in America Center
8415 W 3rd St
Ticket Price: Free
Four Satsangs (spiritual discourses) spread on different weeks, span the duration of darkness sounding, in which singer / composer Odeya Nini and artistic director Christopher Rountree lead discussions, group sings, sound baths, and readings around the topics of community, endeavoring, history, darkness, and ritual.
This first Satsang, a soundbath led by Odeya Nini is a total sound immersion in the healing power of the human voice. Open your body, heart and mind as you lay down and journey in meditation to the healing sound waves of changing vibration, dynamic tone, melody, emotion and the powerful resonance of the voice. The voice will be accompanied by the celestial drones of Himalayan singing bowls, crystal bowls, gong and chime.
