Kattt Atchley creates sound works blending voice, amplification, electronics, with resonances from the ethereal and "other." She performs as a soloist, in improvisational duets with Ron Heglin, and with laptop bar band "The Atchleys."
Work-In-Progress:/// "The Atchleys" laptop bar band with Kenneth.
/// Improvisations for voice and electronic long tones with Ron Heglin exploring the ambiguities of microtonal relationships with a focus on moment to moment change.
/// "Influctuations", the performer stands behind a translucent screen. From the rear of the stage, a pair of lights cast the performer's shadow onto the screen. The accompanying sound of the piece is of one long, uninterrupted, micro-inflected breath and the sound of the tongue vibrating against the lips, hard palate, and teeth along with a layered recording of these sounds. The unhurried temporal scale of this work is designed to allow the time and acoustic space for contemplation and the audience's collaborative imagination to evolve.
/// "I Dream", this nocturne is a mix of my tongue vibrating against the lips, hard palate, and teeth along with casio keyboard chords and a wash of shortwave fuzz and dirty vinyl.
