Ken Ueno

SELECTED VOCAL PERFORMANCES

[ Compositions ] - [ Performance Notes ] - [ Selected Performances: 2002-2005 / 2006-2008 / Vocal ]

As a vocalist, Ken specializes in extended techniques including overtone singing, vocal multiphonics, circular breathing, and singing sub-tones and extreme high registers (in the range of 6-ledger line Ds). As a laptop artist, he often integrates his voice with software instruments he designed using Max/MSP. His two main groups are the experimental improvisation group, Onda (w/Tim Feeney, perc., Hillary Zipper, violin) and the avant-rock group, Blood Money (w/Tom Worster, Nord synth., Jon Whitney, 808 + effects).
