About this Episode

An omnivore when it comes to performing, soprano Peyee Chen enjoys singing Monteverdi with lute and bass viol as much as singing Bernhard Lang with electronics and electric bass. Up for physical challenges, she has performed with poet Caroline Bergvall on her Raga Dawn series, outdoors and starting before sunrise. She is interested in vocal and physical improvisation, DIY electronic instruments, and installation and performance art, recently performing in Martin Creed’s exhibition at Hauser & Wirth’s London gallery, where she sang music by Martin for 30 minutes every hour, eight hours a day, two or three days each week for six weeks.

My gratitude goes out to Hannah Boissonneault who edits our Masterclass episodes and to Juanitos and Scott Holmes for the music featured in this episode.
