THE SINGING FIELD

Responses to Participation in Performances of Environmental Vocal Exploration

On this page, I share the progress and news of my PhD research about the use of improvisational singing in Environmental Vocal Exploration (EVE). I am pleased to be studying under the expert guidance of Jesse Stewart, PhD, Ellen Waterman, PhD of Carleton University. The fieldwork has been completed. The Singing Field – an immersive, collaborative performance piece was completed throughout summer 2020 and I am in the final phases of my work. Hasi Eldib created the documentary film based on inspiring sings in six locations. Six singers performed together to help me understand what the act of engaging in EVE taught us about environments, and our selves.
