About this Event

Soprano Stephanie Lamprea performs the entirety of Georges Aperghis' 14 Récitations. A 45-minute avant-garde song cycle for unaccompanied voice, 14 Récitations (1977–78) shatters traditions of music and theater through innovative uses of atonality, extended vocal techniques (including operatic singing, speaking, sputters and screams), puzzles and repetitions. Each movement incorporates variations of non-semantic text-setting, incorporating combined fragments of French words and vocal utterances to create "mental portraits en miniature." (Aperghis)

Colombian-American soprano Stephanie Lamprea is an architect of new sounds and expressions as a performer, recitalist, curator, and improviser, specializing in contemporary classical repertoire. Trained as an operatic coloratura, Stephanie uses her voice as a mechanism of avant-garde performance art, creating “maniacal shifts of vocal production and character… like an icepick through the skull” (Jason Eckardt). She has received awards from the Concert Artist Guild, St. Botolph Club Foundation, the John Cage Orgel Stiftung in Germany, and the Puffin Foundation. Stephanie has performed as a soloist for Sound Scotland's 2021 soundfestival, Roulette Intermedium, Constellation Chicago, National Sawdust, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She has presented artistic research for the 2021 Young Women Composers Conference (USA) and the 2021 Shared Narratives Conference (UK), and she was a featured TEDx Speaker for TEDxWaltham: Going Places. Stephanie is a doctoral candidate at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, supervised by composer/zoo-musicologist Dr. Emily Doolittle and co-supervised by Dr. Laura Gonzalez and Jean Sangster. Her artistic research centers on the contemporary classical voice through extended techniques, multi-disciplinary performance, and vocal composition and improvisation via various eco-materialist perspectives.
