Viv Corringham

Viv Corringham (electric voice, sound recordings) is a New York based British singer. Her work includes performance, installations, radio and soundwalks. She is a 2012 and 2006 McKnight Composer Fellow through American Composers Forum, 2015 resident artist at Harvestworks Media Arts, NYC and is certified to teach Deep Listening by Pauline Oliveros. Her work has been presented in twenty two countries on five continents.

Since the 1980s she has been singing a wide range of music that includes free improvisation, Greek Rembetika and spontaneously created songs. She has also been recording soundscapes in the many countries her sound and installation work has taken her. These various elements find their way into her live performances.

She performs solo, in ad-hoc improvising groups and in fixed groups which include Monkey Puzzle Trio with (ex-This Heat) Charles Hayward, Seven Sisters of Smyrna, playing psychedelic Rembetika with Clive Bell and Sylvia Hallett,  Unusual Boulevard with Gianni Mimmo and Angelo Contini, and Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens trio with Miguel Frasconi,

 “From cool Brion Gysin-esque wordplay to looped and multilayered operatic wails.” (The Wire)
