Songs of Stone – Music for voice and Sound-Stones (June 2010)
This summer Natascha Nikeprelevic started to perform this summer
her cycle „Songs of Stone“ for solo voice and sound stones. These stone-sculptures
were made by the artist Elmar Daucher
between 1974 to 1989. His sound stones are polished cubes and steles weighing several tons.
This, in certain rhythms sawed pieces can be made to sound by touching, hitting or rubbing
with the hand. Since 2005 Natascha works with Dauchers sculptures; the concert programm
„Labyrinth“ for two voices and sound stones (Duo Transverbal) was broadcasted
by German Public Radio Berlin.
Music for voice a capella and the props found in the space
(here: chair, radiator and ladder). KuLe Theatre, Berlin (April, 2010).
An evening about love – The love, above all, in the experience of itself in NOW.
Natascha uses this as an impulse for every movement and every voice statement –
also in dialogue with the peculiarities and specific features of a space.

Music theatre for voice a cappella
Comments on youtube:
„An instant classic if you ask me!“ – „I think Natascha is one
of the most interesting artist in this kind of research!“
„In this performance I detect “all in one” her skills of dramatic art –
voice, dance, whole body movements and her specific language of hands –
her diversity of expression is amazing, starting with shadow play and developing
a presentation of her real beautiful person once in meditation or
on extroverted provocations.”
Recital for voice and tambura (Munich, Dec. 2009)
The program of RECITAL ist to unfold the voice with overtone singing
and to cross the borders of the harmonious context and the „corset“ of the Tambura-sound.
allEin at University of Arts Taipei, Taiwan (June 2009)
Natascha Nikeprelevic, an exceptionally fine overtone singer and performer,
performed her overtone classic. This 3-minute excerpt does not include overtone singing,
but does reveal the music and movement flow of a fine performer.
