Sarmen Almond (MX)
Musician, voice performer, inter-media artist and teacher. Sarmen uses the voice and its relationship with electronic media to create compositions and decomposition of the personality on stage. She’s constantly in a quest of the vocal possibilities that the human body utters as instrument as well as the reflection of these sounds in physical and imaginary spaces. Almond makes use of resources of free improvisation, extended vocal techniques, programming and body work. sarmenalmond.wordpress.com

Workshop: OUR VOICES – OUR SOURCES with Sarmen Almond
This workshop deepens into vocal self-knowledge, for free voice management. It is an approach to the personal vocal sound and identity, towards multiple ways of utter and color vocal sounds… a freedom without conditions, guided by knowledge of the instrument itself.
Participants will work on attentive listening and development of the auditory capacity to place notes, sounds, motives, within a sound environment. Find more info on the project Alquimia Vocal.
