Run by: Michaela Bartoskova
In this group workshop we will focus on listening, voicing, sounding and creating. We will work with the elements of improvised singing including melody, harmony, vocal percussion, text and pulse in an atmosphere of safety and support. This workshop will navigate you into the world of silence, imagination, inspiration, and explores the interaction between sound, space and body.
- The unique acoustics of the hall will play an important role in our music-making. You will be surprised how glorious it all sounds and feels.
Using words, imagination, sounding, listening, clapping, voicing, stomping, breathing, and moving, we will create songs that have never been sung and can’t ever be repeated. All are welcome to explore this intuitive approach to music.
