Alphabet Of Wrongdoing
Alphabet of Wrongdoing is the newest musical project from Snowblink’s Daniela Gesundheit, exploring ceremonial Jewish prayer songs and blessings that encircle themes of reckoning, forgiveness, mortality, striving, and atonement, reimagined for secular audiences and secular spaces. The texts and melodies are traditional and ancient; the context and arrangements are subversive and impressionistic. This performance acts as a communal investigation of gestures of forgiveness—in the words of poet Alan Felsenthal, an attempt to “restore dignity to experience through music.”
Francine Thirteen landed from Venus in Dallas, TX, where she began her earthly life. She is a proud Libra/Scorpio who creates in a genre/aesthetic she calls 'Ritual Pop'. Her current project is entitled 'Psalms for The Queen of Heaven'. Part music and art exhibition, the work is deeply connected to the concept of the body as both a physical and etheric space; an energy center to conjure many things. Performances of the work include her handwoven textile art worn as jewelry and played as instruments.
Odeya Nini is a Los Angeles based experimental vocalist and contemporary composer. At the locus of her interest is performance practices, textural harmony, gesture, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, in works spanning chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrète. Her solo vocal work extends the dimension and expression of the voice and body, creating a sonic and physical panorama of silence to noise and tenderness to grandeur.
