"This is more than music, it is truly a total art form for our century, full of potency and rich expressive power." –Seth Boustead (from Liner Notes)

Composer, flutist and vocal artist Janice Misurell-Mitchell takes a multi-faceted approach to composition.  Drawing on traditional Western European classical elements, she fashions pieces that reach into the rich sources of jazz, popular, and ethnic music. "Her attempts at stretching music's boundaries-by incorporating improvisation and performance art...have produced refreshing results."  Ted Shen, Chicago Reader.

Janice Misurell-Mitchell - Uncommon Time
Music for voice, flute and percussion
The Southport Composers Series
(October 26, 2010)

Composer, flutist and performance artist Janice Misurell-Mitchell offers a unique vision of American contemporary music. Drawing on traditional Western European classical elements, she fashions pieces that reach into the rich sources of jazz, popular and ethnic music.

"This anthology of works covers a period of nearly twenty years, from 1991 through 2008, during which Janice Misurell-Mitchell has made herself an essential part of the Chicago new music scene.
And as a composer, she has written works - many of which incorporate speech, theater, and even dance - for settings that range from solo flute to orchestra. These pieces are exhilaratingly free but rigorously constructed, and they have established her as a singular and accomplished composer of modern classical music."
From Liner Notes by Neil Tesser
