The workshop focuses on building confidence from within and without. It asks how do we see ourselves and how we can help others see us in beneficial ways. Workshop leader Fay Victor—a New York-based sound artist and composer—leads exercises, demonstrations, and discussions in the service of being seen. RSVP is required and space is limited.
Fay Victor, called “artistically complete” by the New York Times, hones a unique vision for the vocalist's role in jazz and improvised music. Victor’s recorded work has been featured in media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, Time Out New York, and The Huffington Post. Victor has performed with luminaries such as Randy Weston, Roswell Rudd, Nicole Mitchell, Archie Shepp, Marc Ribot, and Tyshawn Sorey. Performance highlights include those at The Museum of Modern Art (New York), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Kölner Philharmonie (Germany), De Young Museum (San Francisco), Symphony Space (New York), and Bimhuis (Netherlands). Victor was the 2017 Herb Albert/Yaddo Fellow in Music Composition. Current releases include her album Wet Robots (ESP Disk, July 2018) with her SoundNoiseFUNK project, Nicole Mitchell’s Maroon Cloud (FPE Records, August 2018), and Marc Ribot’s upcoming Songs of Resistance (September 2018) featuring Victor as well as guests vocalists Tom Waits, Steve Earle, and Meshell Ndegeocello.
