Roomful of Teeth Joins Synesthesia

Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. For the Birth Movement of Synesthesia, Roomful of Teeth perform an original score by Elliot Cole. The group achieves an otherworldly sound that is the perfect start for Synesthesia. 

Through study with masters from singing traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an ongoing commissioning process, forges a new repertoire without borders. Collaborators include Kanye West, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-yArDs), and the legendary Terry Riley. In April 2013, ensemble member Caroline Shaw received the Pulitzer Prize for Music for Partita for 8 Voices, which appears on the group’s debut album.
