The Cornelia Street Cafe – EMILIE WEIBEL OMOO SOLO VOICE 12/22 8PM-9:45PM

“What is striking about her show is that she travels light, just her voice, a looper, a sampler, a few essentials to connect the devices to the speakers, a book of poetry by Mallarme, and a homemade music box with a player strip she punched herself. She uses the looper to accompany her own voice with itself and build layers of sound live and mostly in the moment. The effect is exceptionally delicate at times, playfully idiosyncratic, and sometimes stirring, a sort of musical bricolage that reminded me of everything from the Symbolist poets, to Dada and the Futurists,the onomatopoetic conceits and childlike fancies of the “Banquet Years”, and – given the technology she was using – the eccentricities of more recent artists in the vein of Bjork. ” by John Osburn “In her oMoO guise, Weibel – with an assortment of entrancing lo-fi electronics, loop devices, a cheap music box and voice effects – creates minimalist vocal magic.” The Village Voice (2013) ” Weibel is the subtle songbird with an equally mesmerizing presence and a DIY ethos.” The Village Voice (2013) “The mesmerizing “Arawaks,” where guest vocalist Emilie Weibel applies her ghostly wordless vocalizations” — Downbeat (2012) $10 cover plus $10 minimum
