Being ‘on time’ and connected

Are you sometimes late? Sometimes stressed because you don’t fit into someone else’s idea of time?

There is something peculiar about our own personal rhythm and our relationship with TIME and others. Because one could say it is always best to ‘follow your own rhythm’, but what if that rhythm doesn’t groove with the world around us?

How can we ‘take our time’ and still be ‘on time’ whenever it is needed?

Improvisation music is a great place to explore this. Where to keep our own time, where to yield and change our timing, groove together or enjoy the spicy reality of an incongruent rhythmic relationship. We can be connected in so many ways. 🙂

Looking at rhythm and timing from a Genetic Choir point of view, we are less interested in counting rhythms and more interested in developing crisp timing of your own rhythmic phrases and the exhilaration of singing together in ’many times’ (polyrhythms). We will explore the thrill of falling together in the ‘same time’ and deviating away from it again. We will explore how we can let complex rhythms appear, how we can groove together and groove on our own, in short: A weekend to become a true rhythm animal without ever counting a beat!
