Afternoon 07: Standing Airwaves
Singers and brass players are the only musicians producing sounds themselves. This seminar focuses on the parallels between sound and communication. When producing words, we use our own sound sources – vocal cords. Yet despite the existence of several different languages, music is one that’s universally understood. This seminar deals with improvisation in music as a tool for transcultural communication. After all, in its purest form, music is all about communication and collaboration! No specific skills are required to attend the seminar – just an interest to get in contact with each other and find one’s own expression on a personal and professional level. Participants start from scratch and produce music by using their own sound sources. It will be up to them to try and find the approach that suits them best! It’s not about becoming a virtuoso performer, but about making a personal statement. Every tone that you consciously set has a value. Music is not a space for wrong or right, but for tension and release.
