David Moss is considered one of the most innovative singers and percussionists in contemporary music. Originally from New York, he moved to Berlin in 1992 on a DAAD Fellowship. He is currently the Artistic Director of the MADE Festival (Sweden) and is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Living Voice (worldwide). A recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, in 2005 he was soloist in the opening concerts of both the Venice Biennale and the Queensland Biennial Music Festival. In 2003 Moss made his Carnegie Hall debut with the American Composers Orchestra, under Steven Sloane. He was soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle; sang in Olga Neuwirth’s production of Lost Highway; performed his solo music at the Venice Biennale; and appeared at Lincoln Center, in the Great Performers Series. Moss performed at the Salzburg Festival in 1999 as featured soloist in Luciano Berio’s Cronaca del Luogo, and in 2001 as Prince Orlovsky in Die Fledermaus. Moss has sung at the Edinburgh Festival, Spoleto Festival, and the Lucerne Festival in Heiner Goebbels’ orchestra work, Surrogate Cities. He has been a guest soloist with the Ensemble Modern since 1995.

CONCERT: Friday, September 21, 4:15pm & 5:30pm

At the Planetarium, Moss will perform Hyperglyphyx – a solo performance on the edges of technology featuring voice, electronics, objects, stories and exploring moments of FTL (faster than logic) communication through warped words, found songs, phased phonemes, and scrambled texts from Wittgenstein, Cage and Calvino.
