Conversation with Hannah about The Embodied Voice

It must be coming up on two years ago, I was asked by voice teacher Hannah Marie Gatt to write something for her website about The Embodied Voice. It was taking me for ever to actually respond to her questions in writing, so instead we arranged to meet up and do an interview in person. A friend who I know from SKRONK had also been interested in interviewing me about my practice as an improviser, so I thought let’s combine them!
