New Yorker preview:

“It seems practically unthinkable that this Argento New Music Project event is billed as the vocalist and composer Erin Gee’s first-ever portrait concert, given that the disparate works that she calls “Mouthpieces” are so potent, influential, and genuinely appealing. She initiated the series, in 2000, with a modest two-minute earworm that showcased her own idiosyncratic vocal techniques; she has now completed thirty such pieces, for singer, instrumentalists, or both at once. Here, Gee performs some of her distinctive compositions, including two New York premiéres, alongside Argento’s dependable skillful players.” - Steve Smith, Feb. 2019

The Shillim Foundation is an outgrowth of the Shillim Institute which is 3,500 acres of a super biodiverse landscape in the Western Ghats mountain region in Maharashtra, India, and it's designated as an UNESCO hotspot for biodiversity.

As part of the commission, I spent 8 days this May doing sound research at the Shillim Foundation in Maharashtra, and worked with expert sound engineer and designer Joel Gordon to produce onsite bioscoustic recordings that captured the sounds of the region, which I am using both for inspiration and as actual sonic structures. I'm incredibly touched by the Foundation’s mission to intersect the arts and ecological conservation in order for us to deepen our understanding and appreciation of this planet.
