Afternoon 09: Shaping the Sound
If our eyes are the gateway to the world, then our ears are the gateway to the universe. This seminar will offer participants to dive into the unbounded universe of sounds, tones and music. In interactive sessions, participants will consciously listen to their own voices and acoustically experience themselves and their surroundings, for example by sensing their own bodies as instruments and mediums to carry and form sounds. Participants will actively shape sounds and create rules that are necessary for harmonious coexistence. Sensitising themselves to the wealth of sounds around will strengthen their awareness, mindfulness and sense of timing, which can enhance active listening and public speaking skills as well as the ability to engage in dialogue. The goal of this seminar will be to listen mindfully to oneself, others and the spaces around us. It will strengthen the sense of togetherness but also one’s confidence and sense of self.
