A Special Thanks to Our Co-producers from Tilted Axes

Planetarium

Dear co-producers, sponsors, and supporters,

Thank you for much for your support throughout the spring and summer. With your help, we’ve been able to present a number of free performances to the public. 

Most recently we completed our residency at the 27th Annual Concert of Colors in Detroit at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Michigan Science Center. Over two days we were able to perform for a couple thousand people live and many more than that through television.

The response was incredible. Every paper and magazine made us a Critics’ Pick and we were well represented on the the radio, WDET and CJAM especially.

With your help, we created a new type of work that will resonate for a long time. Now we have something that can be presented with other museums, science centers, and transformative community arts organizations. This will come.

Roomful of Teeth is a cutting-edge, eight-person vocal ensemble that commissions and performs music of all sorts of genres and techniques from all over the world. They’ve studied yodeling, Tuvan throat singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Korean pansori, etc.

“We study with masters from these other singing traditions and get some degree of comfort and flexibility from those interactions,” explains founder and director Brad Wells. “And then the commissioned composers observe that process, hear what the singers are capable of and then explore, ‘Given these possibilities what might I create?’
