Episode #18: Christine Duncan and the Element Choir


Christine Duncan talks with me about the development of the Element Choir in the context of her life’s work as an improvising vocalist. She describes how she came up with the unique system of gestural cues that she uses to conduct the choir, her approach to structured improvisation, and her early experiences in church music. In a conversation taking place on a park bench in Toronto, Duncan identifies her natural mimetic instinct and the joy inherent in vocal expression as the deep sources of her musical spring.
