Review: Roomful of Teeth, Making Nerdiness Cool (The New York Times, 10/19/15)

Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. Through study with masters from singing traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an ongoing commissioning process, forges a new repertoire without borders. Their pair of albums have garnered a great deal of attention in the world of classical, chamber, and new music.

Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, the band gathers annually at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Massachusetts, where they’ve studied Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean Pansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music and Persian classical singing with some of the world’s top performers and teachers. Commissioned composers include Rinde Eckert, Judd Greenstein, Caleb Burhans, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-yArDs), William Brittelle, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Missy Mazzoli, Michael Harrison, Sam Amidon and Ted Hearne.   

Upcoming projects in 2015-2016 include The Colorado, a music driven documentary film that explores water, land and survival in the Colorado River Basin (featuring former Kronos Quartet cellist Jeffrey Zeigler and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche); concerts with the Seattle Symphony performing Berio's Sinfonia; collaborations with NOW Ensemble and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME); appearances at new music festivals in the US, Mexico, Vancouver, South Korea and Turkey; and partnerships with over a dozen higher education institutions across the country.
