Odeya Nini is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary vocalist and composer.
At the locus of her interests are performance practices, gesture, textural harmony, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, and works spanning from chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrète.
Her solo vocal work extends the dimension and expression of the voice and body, creating a sonic and physical panorama of silence to noise and tenderness to grandeur.
Odeya has collaborated extensively with dancers, visual artists, filmmakers and theater directors as both a composer and soloist and she has worked with and appeared in works by artists and ensembles such as Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Lucy & Jorge Orta, The Industry & Wild Up.
Odeya’s work has been presented at venues and festivals across the US and internationally, such as Resonant Bodies Festival, Banff Centre, The Broad Museum, The LA Phil, MONA and Art Basel Miami, from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Australia, Mongolia, Madagascar and Vietnam. She leads vocal sound baths, workshops and retreats exploring the transformative and healing qualities of embodying the voice.
Odeya holds a BFA from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and an MFA in composition from California Institute of the Arts.
