With the Rio2016 Olympics in sight, here a piece of Genetic-Choir-laced Brazilian music! 🙂
This was a collaboration of the Genetic Choir with the wonderful singers of Cafuné. Recorded in december 2015 on our first “Church Songs for the 21st Century” concert.
We have a planned new date, for the second edition of this concert series, that brings manifold cultural influences on spiritual music together in the frame of ‘Church Music and Improvisation”. So for all our fans, write it down:
2 december 2016
Another taste of last year’s concert (our bulgarian-orthodox music collaboration with the Pauni Trio) can be found if you click here.
With a big thanks for the support by Fonds Podiumkunsten, we are happy to announce that the Genetic Choir will – as planned – be travelling to Japan this September!
Our program is:
If you know of people we can connect to in Japan while we are over there, please let us know!
We have plans for furthergoing collaborations, to create a Dutch-Japanese research/performance project on the craft of Improvisation and the craft of Water Engineering in 2018.
But first things first… 🙂
While the Loop-Copy-Mutate project of the Genetic Choir is in further development, Thomas Johannsen has been invited to the International Symposium on the Histories and Practices of Choral Singing after submitting this article that describes the collaboration of the ‘human sampling organism’ of the Genetic Choir with computer music programmers working on computer listening and music creative systems.
The Symposium will happen in Lund, Sweden, from 19-21 October 2016.
Travel funding is still being sought to see if a delegation of the Genetic Choir can attend the conference in person.

The International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) is the largest, most established international conference for music practitioners working with digital technologies. It is a travelling annual conference, currently in its 42nd edition, which gathers leading researchers, practitioners and artists from around the world working in the academia, industry, or independently in a variety of fields – a.o. music and sound art, interactive art, performance, musicology, human-computer interaction, computer science and engineering. This year back in the Netherlands (after 30 years), it is organised by Gaudeamus Muziekweek and HKU University of Arts, Utrecht.
With the prospect of beginning programming work on the listening software for the Loop-Copy-Mutate project in August 2016, we intend to hold a hands-one workshop on ICMC2016 for SuperCollider programmers and other interested people, featuring Genetic Choir singers and our own programming team.
We will update you closer to the time with more detailed information.
Tickets for the conference can be bought here.
As the weekend workshop on 28/29 May is already almost full, we decided to hold one more workshop this season, open to newcomers and experienced singers alike:
