Frauke Aulbert
As „Hamburg’s queen of avantgarde” (Hamburger Abendblatt), Frauke Aulbert boasts a vocal range of nearly four octaves and has specialized in the contemporary vocal performance having mastered overtone- and undertone-singing, multiphonics and other timbre-altering techniques, in addition to her formal training in lyrical singing. As a vocal-sound-researcher she studies, describes and sings many different genres - including gamelan, jazz, dhrupad, beatboxing, – and applies those sounds to her interpretation of contemporary vocal music. Improvisation and performances of pieces specifically written for her voice have led her to festivals all over Europe, Brasil, Georgia, Tunisia, the USA and Australia (2015). She was awarded artists residencies in Rome and Paris (Goethe Institut and Cité des Arts) and the first prize by the Stockhausen Foundation. Her dissertation examined Overtone Singing in Contemporary Musicwww.stimmkuenstlerin.de
