On November 16, KANEKO and Omaha Under the Radar present the third Generator
Series event, featuring GRAMMY-winning vocal project Roomful of Teeth.
Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice.
Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, Roomful of Teeth gathers annually at the Massachusetts Museum of
Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Massachusetts, where they’ve studied with some of
the world’s top performers and teachers in Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, Broadway belting, Inuit throat
singing, Korean P’ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music, Persian classical
singing and Death Metal singing.
Commissioned Composers include Rinde Eckert, Fred Hersch, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-yArDs),
William Brittelle, Toby Twining, Missy Mazzoli, Julia Wolfe, Ted Hearne and Ambrose Akinmusire,
among many others. Projects in 2016-2017 include The Colorado, a music-driven documentary film that
explores water, land and survival in the Colorado River Basin (featuring former Kronos Quartet cellist
Jeffrey Zeigler and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche); collaborations with A Far Cry and Nick Zammuto of The
Books; appearances at new music festivals in the US, Canada and Sweden; and partnerships with nearly
two dozen higher education institutions across the country.
About the Generator Series
Presented by KANEKO and Omaha Under the Radar, the Generator Series will present events that
investigate music’s relationship to our physical world, seeking the connections between sound and
architecture, sound and natural landscapes, sound and the human body, and more. Focusing on music by
living composers, including sound improvisation and experimental composition, the Generator Series will
be an outlet for non-commercial music that asks questions about how we listen, and how we interact with sound in the 21st Century.
