Speaker Bio

AMY X NEUBURG (Oakland, California) has been creating her own brand of irreverently genre-crossing works for voice, live electronics, and big and small ensembles for over 30 years. She’s known for her innovative use of live looping technology with electronic percussion, her 4-octave vocal range and her colorful — often humorous — lyrics. One of the earliest performers to work with live digital looping, Amy has presented her solo “avant-cabaret” songs at such diverse venues as the Other Minds and Bang on a Can new music festivals, the Berlin International Poetry Festival, the Wellington and Christchurch Jazz Festivals (New Zealand), the Warsaw Philharmonic Hall, colleges, clubs and concert halls throughout the U.S. and abroad. Amy also composes extensively for ensembles and choruses, modern dance and theater, and multi-channel audio spaces. A classically trained vocalist, she has sung in operas and performance pieces created just for her, as well as in numerous rock bands.

In her presentation at the planetarium, Ms. Neuburg will discuss her unique approach to technology in music, demonstrate the features of her equipment, and perform some of her more ethereal songs accompanied by heavenly projections.
