"Vox is NYC surreal edgy beautiful, tribal, refined, unbound and healing."
"Oh her voice is queen of the angels mind blowing mystical..."
"Vox Vespertinus channels the hagiography of exultant vocalists..."
""The voice of an oracle singing the world into being...."
"Vox vespertinus emanates the highest vision of an angelic presence, activating deep cellular awakening by a gorgeous operatic voice ..."
"What she does reminds me of the alien diva in The Fifth Element ..."
"That singing of Vox Vespertinus thing blew my mind. It's that moment that completely made my night - like when you say, "This is why I am." Maybe nobody was listening to what I played but me, but who cares. I had a blast and I was somehow in a trance playing close to that amazing woman with her insane singing. Aaa, I am still high from it… "
"Thank you (Vox Vespertinus) for providing such fitting atmosphere with your haunting music."
Vox Vespertinus is vocalist Susan DuMett. The name Vox Vespertinus comes from Latin and roughly translates to voice awakening in the evening. Vesper is also a reference to Venus, the evening star and also morning star. It is also an evening prayer.
Intuitive, of-the-moment vocalizations and looped layering of vocals shape her solo work. Her voice ranges from the celestial to the subterranean, and Susan often augments her vocal layering with synthesizers and other organic sounds. No two performances are ever the same for the sound and vibrations that come through are often shaped by the space and people in attendance. In addition to performance, recording, and ritual sounding Susan/VoxV is a private voice mentor and teaches vocal sound healing and voice empowerment to individuals and groups.
Susan also performs with a variety of musicians ranging from experimental to classical to meditative and journeying to black metal and is often commissioned to create live or pre-recorded soundscapes for galleries, dance, and theatrical performances and performance art, and projects with themes of the other worldly. She is a highly empathic clairvoyant and also offers songs and soundings for life milestones, healing and spiritual rituals, including for people transitioning from this world to the next. See Spiritus.
