Voice & Consciousness

Location: Fortuna | Kellerbar

Voice & Consciousness

In this new workshop, we will explore contemplative exercises, inspired by mindfulness and Tai Chi practise, where the singer explores musical and rhythmical awareness from the inside out, through visualization, audiation and “bodyation" of notes, musical phrases, rhythms and physical movements. The main purpose of these exercises is peace of mind. With confident intonation and a solid sense of rhythm as potential side effects.
