Talkin' Music

  • Chase Public 1569 Chase Avenue Cincinnati, OH, 45223 United States (map)

Talkin’ Music is a performance exploring the sound of scripted words.

The idea.
Writers and actors know the rhythm and order in composed words. Media like cartoons, plays, and radio news reports are all written to be heard, but they hold such different music in them. What makes these sounds pleasing?
And what happens when these melodies are in the hands of musicians?

The prompt.
Our musicians have been tasked with the following:
1. Choose an audio clip of a person speaking written words.
2. Compose an original piece of music containing the melody and intonation of the speaking.

The musicians.   
-Ashley Greathouse
-Zach Larabee
-Eva Patterson
-Deborah Clark Colón

Join us for an evening of spontaneity and new conversations at the first Talkin’ Music performance.

Talkin’ Music is brought to you by Cincinnati artist Gabrielle Lanza in partnership with Chase Public. You can see other projects of Gabrielle's at or @gala_art on Instagram.
