Roomful of Teeth is a vocal ensemble founded by Brad Wells. Its stated mission is to "mine the expressive potential of the human voice". Through study with masters from non-classical traditions the world over, the nine voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an on-going commissioning project, invites composers to create a new repertoire without borders.
The ensemble gathers annually at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA), where they have studied Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean p’ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music and Persian classical singing with some of the world’s top performers and teachers of the styles.
