Vocal Instant Composition

Conclusion “Phrasing project” + Workshops coming up!

Last weekend, the research project between the Genetic Choir and Instant Composition dancers has come to a first conclusion with performances in Utrecht and Amsterdam. A process of unexpected discoveries, moments of amazing poetry and a lively struggle with the subject matter:
How to combine voice and movement -> improvisation singers and improvisation dancers in one instant composition performance?

We are fond of our fellow researchers and want to give a big thanks to Marisa Grande for the collaboration and to the other dancers who exchanged their time and expertise with us: Virag Deszo, Maria Michailidou, Johnny Schoofs, Mark Alexander Nukoop, Sarah Kate Gardiner. We are already planning to follow-up this promising exploration with more sessions of the research ensemble.

Firstly, Marisa Grande is giving the workshop

“Weaving a dialogue”

next week in Utrecht, where the interconnectedness of movement and voice in improvisation will be the central topic. More info about her workshop on 12+13 April, click here.

The next two Genetic Choir workshops will also address phrasing in their own way, and as always body-work and movement will be involved in our musical explorations:

“Melody Makers” in June


“The Edge of Language” in October.

Both workshops are open for pioneer participants to inscribe now. More info on these two workshops, click here.
