IMPROVISATION AND CREATIVITY WORKSHOP
24 AND 25 FEBRUARY 2020
Synopsis of the workshop
Music is one of the most important aggregating elements for the human being. Through it the feeling of belonging and communion reinforces our empathy, our capacity to see each other again, to be the other, to the point that there is no longer me or the other. The teaching of music has, more than ever, to remember and be reminded of this phenomenon so natural, alive and crucial. The purpose of this workshop is to be a space where music emerges respecting the individual, integrating him/her into the group. An exploration of sound, unpretentious, but attentive and active. Intuitive, improvising. Without pre-conceived music, distant. Just us, the discovery of our creative freedom and its concretion in sound.
