Queering Debussy - Ariettes Oubliées

Exploring Debussy's music from a queer and ecological lens

New Project Alert!

This exciting new project exists to highlight the intersection of queerness, nature, & art song through a series of audio-visual content of Debussy’s Ariettes oubliées. Exploring contemporary filmmaking and music video practices, intermodal arts, and experimental approaches to mixing "nature sounds" into classical music, we will present classical vocal music in an interesting and easily accessible format.

The dream team!

Anna Bigland-Pritchard: soprano, co-director, marketing

Alex Chen: collaborative pianist, co-director, administration

Kelly Conlin: Cinematographer

Wynn Gogol: Audio engineering, mixing and mastering

Angelica Schwartz:  Co-Director, Dramaturg
