Part monodrama, part song-cycle, part opera, Voices from the Killing Jar crosses a volatile musical landscape populated by a series of female protagonists, among them housewives and teenagers and mothers and daughters, innocents and tragic heroines and femmes fatales. From Madame Bovary’s passionate whirlwind of delusion, to Lady Macduff’s terrified lullaby, to Clytemnestra’s hypnotic and deadly rage, each one is brought to vivid and unforgettable life as composer/performer Kate Soper’s mercurial voice traces a path through their stories. Written for the Wet Ink Ensemble, Voices is designed to maximally exploit the artistic range of ensemble members Ian Antonio, Erin Lesser, Alex Mincek, Joshua Modney, Sam Pluta, and Eric Wubbels, carrying the listener through sound worlds as complex and diverse as the characters that inspired them.
