Must a song always be a song! presents four British and American vocalists, performers and composers, each with a unique professional history and a unique relationship with vocal composition and Extended Vocal Technique, ranging from the popular to the avant-garde. EVT – also known as Extra Normal Vocals – is the study and categorisation of radical singing techniques, or in short: odd mouth sounds.
Curated and presented by Mark Beasley
