The Sounding Body: Vocal Freedom
150 First Ave New York, NY 10009
- $65 per three-week series
- $30 single class drop-in
I offer a workshop around the use of the voice as a liberating music instrument. Voice as a tool to ground in ancestral practices as well as to explore societal and futurist narratives. Drawing from deep listening and healing embodied practices, we'll use vocal technique, tone and presence as premises to approaching vocal improvisation. Invoking oral histories of circle singing and chanting, we'll ground our exploration in the body as archive. From there, sonic possibilities are infinite, among rhythms, melodies, harmonies and counterpoints inherent to our experience of self in relation to each other and to our environment. Vocal improvisation thus serves our unique and complex communication journey, in playfulness. Our study will structure around the following axes:
- Listening: the ear, essential tool to expression
- Knowing the voice: body / tone / language
- Communication: the voice in relation
- Improvisation / culture / self / togetherness: what is freedom?
