Embodied Sound Workshop
SessionsSat, Feb 2, 1:00 PM-5:00 PMSat, Feb 9, 1:00 PM-5:00 PMOptional performance during Second Sundays on February 10
This workshop explores our sonic relationship to rhythm, vibration, and momentum, while focusing on alternative methods of creating sound and music. We will study early uses of the sounding device; take part in daily performance exercises on extended instrumental techniques, perpetual motion, vocal de-tuning, and amplification; and create our very own Sonic Objects out of wood, metal, wax, string, and contact microphones. Ultimately, we will prepare for a live concept-based performance during Second Sundays on February 10, where we will activate and perform with the Sonic Objects we created in class.
Materials: Participants are asked to wear rubber soled shoes and clothing in which they can move comfortably in and get dirty.
Audience: Open to all.
