Los Angeles vocalist Anna Homler sings in alternative languages that extend the possibilities of meaning and communication with a sensibility that is both ancient and post-modern, blurring the line between words and music. Tonight she is joined by some of Seattle’s finest experimental musicians: Amy Denio, Lori Goldston, Byron Au Yong, Doug Haire, and Susie Kozawa.
Since 1982 Anna Homler has performed throughout Europe and the USA, collaborating with composers and musicians Steve Moshier, David Moss, Steve Roden, David Moss, Viola Kramer, Voices of Kwahn, Axel Otto, Frank Schulte, Geert Waegerman and Pavel Fajt, among many others. As a visual artist, her ongoing performance/installation Pharmacia Poetica examines the symbolic and tonal qualities of words and objects. She is presently recording a new album with Seattle musicians as part of an Artist Assistance residency at Jack Straw Productions.
