IGO – Improvisational Groove Orchestra
We meet EVERY Thursday to listen, respond, observe and curiously play with the sounds our voices create together. Our objective is to tune into the common feeling we are developing in the present moment.
Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focused on only the sound space without any other distractions.
At each session we usually have more beginners rather than experienced singers; all levels and voice types are welcome. Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in and be jamming out within the first 15 minutes!
It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.
The last times we explored further into the human sequencer game – a system where one person acts as a conductor, splitting the group into small parts, giving each small group unique impulses that than develop into one composition.
Feel most welcome to come and join us! (please be on time, there are important things to explain before beginning)
** pay as you feel, 3 – 5€ after the session
