2016_06_18. Testimonial. Cassondra Cabbage, member of choir: “Last night I experienced the biggest musical game changer /awakening in my life. I haven’t been awaken by sound like this in nearly six years and that was a spectator not as a performer. For so much of my life I’ve made myself small and have played down my abilities, suffered from anxiety and minimised my own efforts – shyness and insecurity will stop you from doing all too much; That’s why efforts like Band Off, Girls Rock NL, the RPM challenge, Not Enough Fest and public forums for woman musicians are so very important: they can help give you your power back and find your voice again. Being a wredio and meeting like minded werdio’s has evoked a such a strong passion and zest for life inside of me I didn’t was there. & last night I was asked to work on my talent in China by one of the world’s leading experts on extranormal vocal techniques at Guangxi Arts University in Nanning, China. My voice needs to be tamed and I must learn to be guided. I have no musical training… l need to work on seeing the shape of music and start seeing it from conductors perspective and understanding sound from a different perspective. I want to finish my diploma, get my TEFL and work towards another radical adventure in my life & hope such transpires. Thank-you Chris Tonelli, Micheal Edgerton & the VocalX choir. You guys have altered me and I have no words.”

Mention. 2 Sonata. 2 Sonata was discussed by James Erber at the Royal College of Music in London. “I sense very strongly that you are taking flute music (and thus the art of music as a whole) in a new direction, which I find admirable. There are so many new or newish pieces for flute which have what I can only describe as aeolian sound/tongue ram overload. Your piece completely sidesteps this and plunges the listener into a new world of sound. I look forward to the time when I can hear a complete performance.”
Recipient Major Grants (2nd party support).

Performance. Divergence. Argenta Walther & Stephanie Aston. Pasadena, California.
People Inside Electronics presented the contemporary vocal chamber ensemble Accordant Commons in a concert at the Neighborhood Church in Pasadena (Review on Sequenza21: Divergence by Michael Edwards Edgerton followed and this was performed by Stephanie Aston and Argenta Walther. High, bird-like sounds mingled with a low rumbling from the electronics and this soon took on a more frighteningly aggressive character reminiscent of the distant howling of wolves. This increased in savagery as well as loudness, with scratching and baying that gradually morphed into a series of pure pitches that increased in frequency – like a spaceship taking off. These were the result of a weather simulation applied to electronic sounds, a process that allows, according to the program notes, “miniscule irregularities in the initial conditions [to] become responsible for potentially large changes over time.” Low, raspy moaning was added and this made a nice organic contrast with the sterile sine waves. Towards the end, the relatively benign tones in the electronics became a series of explosions, as if some battle was occurring. Divergence is an evocative metamorphosis in sound between earthly, natural elements and remote cerebral coolness.
