The workshop is for everyone who is interested in discovering what the „backstage“ of interaction in making music is all about.
It is open for anyone who wants to use their voice in a manner that doesn’t stay in the way of expressing their emotions.
It is open to non musicians or amateur musitians who are interested in the nature of their own voice.
It is open to working singers who would rather try to establish how they really sound in order to make sure if they can use that sound in music.
It is open to instrumentalists who are interested in the nature of creativity and the obstacles on the way to it.
The major goal of the workshop is to underline the importance of:
- voice as a tool for conveying emotions
- understanding of how one should breathe
- creative approach to everything one does
- ability to interconnect in rhythm in order to to enjoy making music in a spontaneous, improvisational way
The major exercise of the workshop is improvising musical forms based on interaction between lyrics and accompaniment.
Materials and the nature of the exercice should be a surprise, therefore their content shouldn’t be decribed for being used as a incentive to draw the interest of potential participants.
The meeting lasts for 4 hours with 30 mins break in between 2 hours sets. The second set is the work with an accompanist.
