Felicita Brusonis research project is situated within the topic of exploring new fields in the scenario of the extra-normal voice. Research and experiments in this area have already enhanced our knowledge of what humans can do going beyond the limits of voice.

Felicita Brusonis research project is situated within the topic of exploring new fields in the scenario of the extra-normal voice. Research and experiments in this area have already enhanced our knowledge of what humans can do going beyond the limits of voice. One of the outputs of my research project is to build a strong experience around extended vocal techniques, giving Malmö a leading place on the international map about this topic.

I would like the Malmö Academy of Music to become the Multimedia Center for the Extra-normal Voice, the first one in Scandinavia.

Since the aim is also to communicate new knowledge around this issue, her intention is to run a New music vocal ensemble with students from the singing classes of the MHM, and to organize concerts and calls for scores dedicated to pieces that involve the extra-normal voice. Singing students will be involved also in collaborations with professional contemporary music ensembles.

Felicita Brusoni (b. 1986, Italy) is a contemporary soprano, vocal performer and a PhD student in Music with specialization in voice at Academy of Music, University of Lund (Sweden) carrying on a practice-based research project about extended vocal techniques.

She studied opera singing at the R. Accademia Filarmonica in Bologna (Italy) while obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in DAMS – Disciplines of Arts, Music and Performative Arts (2010). Then, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree (2014) in Singing, and a first-class Master Degree (2017) in Vocal Chamber Music (focused on Lieder and contemporary music repertoire) from the Music Conservatory in La Spezia (Italy), where she also began to study the French horn.
