After our usual Open Office Hours (17:00 – 19:00), there will be an Improvisational Groove Orchestra session in Das Baumhaus.
A fun way to experience the joy of vocalizing together…
In this workshop we will explore various methods to create improvisational music with voice and body in a comfortable and supportive environment. We will explore how to connect with each other via many musical styles, layering vocal rhythms, melodies, spoken word and tones with a groovy vibe.
This workshop is designed for singers of all vocal levels from beginners to professionals. Scott will provide the general moderation but any group member can also contribute to guiding us in the creation and discovery of new paths of vocal expression.
We do much of our work with our eyes closed so that we can stay focussed on creating the sound space without distractions. So far we have explored many various styles of vocalisation including polyrhythmic loops, Balinese Kecak chanting, traditional choral singing, freestyle lyrics, vocal and body percussion, emergent improvisational compositions, beat boxing, gospel/spiritual, hip hop, drum n bass, dub step, jazz, reggae & dub +++
