Lyra Pramuk‘s starting point is listening, an empathic response to the contemporary cultural landscape. This likewise tethers her between various projects and forms. Citing musical collaborators such as Holly Herndon and Colin Self, collaborations with the visual artist Donna Huanca, and an ongoing international performance schedule, there are a variety of creative nodes that come to feed back into Pramuk’s practice. These experiences are directly transposed into possibilities for the voice, affording a vocal space that is one of texture as much as lingual clarity.
Maximalist vocal processing cajoles us through melodrama and mystique, emotive vocalizations playfully stir instability. Whether embodied in Pramuk’s practice as elemental assets of philosophy, theatre, or folk-musical histories, a kinder future is summoned as a fictive play in the present.
