Jasmine Shadrack, Senior Lecture in Popular Music, will be making as much noise as possible when she attends a unique conference later this month.
Mouth Noises, being held at the Science Gallery, part of King’s College London, will look at the incredible range of sound that the human body can create. Attendees will hear from a variety of people who make noises for a living; from opera singers to beatboxers and everything in between.
When she is not teaching her students about music performance, musicological and cultural theory, Jasmine is also the guitarist and front woman of ‘Denigrata’, an avant-garde Black Metal band. She will demonstrate her impressive screaming vocal range at the Mouth Noises event, before explaining how she does it.
Jasmine explained: “This is the first time I have been asked to undertake a demonstration into how I scream in Denigrata. I am very excited to perform my screaming in front of other professional musicians – including a baritone and a soprano. It’s an exciting opportunity to find out more about how people use their voicebox and throats in different ways to make exceptional sounds.”
