The Music of Sound: Improvisation with Everyday Materials
Sunday 19 October, 2.30 – 4pm
£5 per family| Suitable for ages 5 – 15 yrs
With ideas of expanded listening, and performance in mind, join SoundFjord’s director, Helen Frosi, for an afternoon of listening and playing with sound.
By using Shinro Ohtake's exhibition as a direct source of inspiration, those attending The Music of Sound workshop will learn to improvise and experiment sonically with materials associated with the artist’s practice.
Together, attendees will find the unusual and miraculous “music” hidden in everyday materials such as paper, tape, card, wood, thread, wire, metal, sand, seeds and the like. Through simple experiments attendees will find creative ways to make and perform sounds individually and as part of a group.
At the end of the session, workshop attendees will leave with an expand vocabulary around sound and music, listening and performing.
PLEASE NOTE: No musical knowledge is necessary to attend!
