I am a soprano, specialising in the gnarly edges of contemporary classical music. Most of what I sing is brand-new; much of it is written especially for me. My repertoire spans works for solo voice, voice and electronics, voice and piano, voice and ensemble or, as co-founder of EXAUDI, works for vocal ensemble. I began my career singing early music and I still keep that in that mix. I am artistic director of eavesdropping, a festival of experimental musics in East London, co-director of all that dust, a little independent label for new music, and director of VOICEBOX, a brand-new programme for contemporary vocal performance.




NEW YEAR, NEW MUSIC: premieres ahead include new works written for me by CATHERINE LAMB (with Ensemble Musikfabrik), PASCALE CRITON (voice & electronics), CAROLA BAUCKHOLT & KRISTINE TJØGERSEN (with violinist Hannah Weirich). Happily, I also get to hang out with some old favourites, Feldman's Three Voices and Vivier's Bouchara, and Mark Knoop and I continue to tour one of our best-beloved pieces, Øyvind Torvund's Plans for Future Operas. A rare UK appearance occurs in April at the Bristol New Music Festival, with Quatuor Bozzini. Offstage, my festival, eavesdropping, takes place in March and I'm busy inculcating other singers in the dark arts of singing new music via the medium of VOICEBOX, which will culminate in showcase performances at Snape Maltings and Cafe OTO. I was recently awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Southampton and am currently Visiting Fellow there.
