Voice and Music

Voice and music orients the work towards a musical setting, enabling participants to forge links between sound and song, voice and instrument, word and musicality.

The raw material of sound is transformed into an embracing musical form. Improvisation is now guided by attentive listening and an increasing sensitivity to its effect. Songs provide distilled stories for multiple interpretations. Some texts, although they are not designed to be sung literally, offer themselves for a subtle study in musicality.

The meeting with an instrument, pianoforte or cello is an extraordinary opportunity to drop even deeper into a musical world where the vibratory quality of sound can espouse the power of words. Partner and ensemble exchange ensure renewal and freshness in ther work.

Kevin Crawford
Living in Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany, Italy
Worked with Roy Hart and was founder member of the Roy Hart Theatre from 1967
Has been teaching since 1975

At this point in my teaching I do not espouse a single philosophy or approach, although my work is permeated with Roy Hart’s direct legacy. My aim is to invite students to re-examine their assumptions about the voice, and to propose a coherent approach that they can refer to in their personal and professional life. My place in this is as privileged observer, informed ‘provocateur’ and patient guide for reconstructing a wider vocal vision.
