- About the Genetic Choir
Genetic Choir workshops are work-shops in the true sense of the word: we as Genetic Choir singers work/play/research in them on the intensive level that we enjoy and the work is at the same time open to everyone – no previous skills required. If you never worked with your voice or music before, you can always come and make a first acquaintance (you will see it is easy to find your own place in the work, whatever your personal background). On the other hand, experienced singers are mingling on the workshop with weathered Genetic Choir singers and they are always pleasantly surprised about the high quality of work that is created notwithstanding the different types of singers present.
Any participant is challenged in his/her assumptions about music making and the possibility of their own voice, and leaves our workshops enriched, tired :-) and highly energised. The workshops are our own laboratory and training ground, and we are happy to share the work with you!
A workshop about the moments when sound becomes language and vice versa. We will play with and research the use of words in improvisation, with the focus on the exciting no-mans-land between the abstraction of music and the literal meaning of language. (more info: click here)
Een workshop over de momenten waar klank overgaat in taal en vice versa. We verkennen het gebruik van woorden in muziek en improvisatie, met de focus op het spannende grijze gebied tussen muzikale abstractie en het ontstaan van letterlijke betekenis. (meer info: klik hier)
