At Musik Centrum Stockholm in the 1980s, composer and musician Phil Minton set up a series of open workshops and invited members of the public to participate in a forthcoming choir performance. The result was The Feral Choir, a format Minton continues to this day and develops worldwide. Comprising primarily of ‘non-singers’ who learn and use improvisation over Minton’s 3-day workshop, the Feral Choir is Minton’s concept of an ensemble that can sing without cultural influences or references.
