Call in to speak with the host
Wendalyn Bartley is a composer, vocal performer and sound energy practitioner living in Toronto. For over twenty-five years she has pursued an artistic practice dedicated to an awakening of the voice of the feminine, the earth, and a reunited humanity.
Her compositions are rooted in the contemporary chamber and electroacoustic music traditions, extended vocal practice and soundscape studies with influences from various earth-based spiritual practices, eco-feminist thought, mythic story traditions and wholistic healing modalities.
She has collaborated with artists from the fields of visual arts, video, radio, music-driven theatre, opera and community arts, and her works have been performed and broadcast internationally. The music on her newly released album entitled “Sound Dreaming: Oracle Songs From Ancient Ritual Spaces is created from vocalizations made at ancestral temple and cave sites in Malta and Crete. She received her MMus in composition from McGill University.
