Sussan Deyhim’s vocal works have placed her among the most innovative experimental vocalists of our time. In Whispers From The Underworld the composer, vocalist, sonic conceptualist, and performance artist presents a 75 min solo concert and New York premiere of her virtuosic, lushly layered vocals and compositions. Her music is as much rooted in ancient musical rituals as it is in her futuristic sonic vision. Much of the material is derived from her various excursions in film, visual arts and opera.

“Thrilling music…sounds in the ear long after you’ve left the show.” —NY Times

The performance includes excerpts from the score for Once Within A Time, a film by the visionary Godfrey Reggio scored by Philip Glass and Deyhim, exec-produced by Steven Soderberg. Deyhim will also share her music for Shirin Neshat’s video works, including a rare performance of Neshat’s Golden Lion winning video Turbulent, as well as Logic of the Birds, presented at Lincoln Center and initially produced by Roselee Goldberg.

Lastly, Deyhim will perform excerpts from her collaboration with Richard Horowitz for their stage production The House is Black, a media project initiated by the CAP UCLA Residency Program and premiered at Royce Hall in Los Angeles and at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

“Sussan Deyhim is one of Iran’s most potent voices in exile for the simple reason that she possesses a marvelously potent voice. She wails and coos and ululates, the sound of the soul in translation.” —LA Times
