More Info:

Composer/vocalist Kate Soper teams up with longtime Wet Ink Ensemble colleague composer/electronic musician Sam Pluta in this bracing collection that explores the ever shifting hierarchy between text driven and music dominated vocal work. Soper's characteristically clever approach to setting text is balanced by Pluta's ever inventive and sensitive marshaling of his unique arsenal of electronic textures. Kate Soper is a composer, performer, and writer. Her work explores the integration of drama and rhetoric into musical structure, the slippery continuums of expressivity, intelligibility and sense, and the wonderfully treacherous landscape of the human voice. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, she has received awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Koussevitzky Foundation, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and has been a featured performer with ensembles including the LA Philharmonic New Music Group, the MIVOS quartet, and the American Composers Orchestra. As a writer of fiction and non-fiction, she has been published by McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, The Massachusetts Review, and PAJ. She is a co-director of the Wet Ink Ensemble.
