Hailed as “alternately buoyant and ponderous, transfixing and exceptional” (City Arts Magazine), Beth Fleenor’s Workshop Ensemble is a 12-piece modular project that performs her chamber works. Grounded in learning and working Fleenor’s 20 Etudes for Blindfolded Musicians, WE also work in conduction and sonic meditation. Through the use of blindfolds to heighten full body listening/awareness, WE cultivate focused intention, highlighting that intention as a respected member of the ensemble, in a practice of non-visual, non-verbal empathic communication.
Since 2006, Paris Hurley & Beth Fleenor have been working together under the name DOUBLE YOKO.
Their experiments are ever-evolving, always growing out of a deeply rooted musical foundation and the processing of daily experiences. Manifestations so far include improvised material, original compositions, essays, installations, and performance art pieces.
