Seattle Modern Orchestra’s season finale will feature composer and vocalist Erin Gee with five of her on-going Mouthpieces works. In an evening of all-female composers, Gee has stated of her Mouthpieces, “The articulatory possibilities of the mouth are often mapped onto the instruments, mirroring and expanding the vocal sounds to form a kind of ‘super-mouth’ that can move beyond the physical limitations of a single vocal tract, merging the voice with both the instruments and with breath, and repeatedly returning to formlessness.” Gee’s sound world is paired with Kaija Saariaho’s Aer, the last movement titled “Phoenix” from her 1991 ballet Maa.
