Chordas Collective is a vocal-forward ensemble recognizable by its polystylistic fluidity and magnetic dynamism with performance possibilities ranging from avant drag sound baths to auto-tuned Gregorian jazz. Fully committed to authenticity as well as parody, Chordas regularly collaborates with cutting edge composers and technologists to tell vital stories and play musical games.

Frequent Collaborators

We sing together, perform each other's compositions, and have made several digital instruments derived from samples of Chordas Collective's vocalists. We are currently working on a sound dumpling lullaby.

Megan DeJarnett

Megan and I perform together and move together. I commissioned her composition walking/I'm Sorry, Mom for the CalArts Contemporary Vocal Ensemble, and she is currently working on a commission for Chordas.
