In August 2019 in Medrese, we explored the links between improvisation and composition, through exercises and play practices around rhythm, melody, harmony and ear training. The participants developed their musical and creative instinct, alone or interacting with others through any medium.
This year, unable to meet in person, we will pursue the work at a distance using your own various devices and softwares to record your ideas and sharing it with other participants as an interactive way of composing. We will create audio pieces, musical fragments or sounds from various sources. The micro compositions and ideas will be meant to be assembled into a larger frame to create a final audio piece.
The music lab is open to all, also the ones who didn’t participate last year.
