resonant-voices-original-vierkant-oilify.jpegUpcoming is a weekend to explore and enrich your voice by opening your ears to the multi-layered complexities of human sound, and play with it together in a polyphonic way: overtones, textures, resonance, timbre…

In deze workshop onderzoek en verrijk je je stem rond resonantie en klank textuur. Terwijl je je oren traint, train en open je je stem. We werken en componeren met tonen, klinkers, andere textuurrijke geluiden van de menselijke stem, klank-clusters, resonantie-ruimtes… (meer info in het Nederlands: klik hier en scroll dan naar beneden)

A workshop on improvising with voice colours and resonance

The voice is a special system in our body – it is eager to learn and it reacts to its own sounds. By opening your ears alone, your voice can learn to become more free and resonant.

This workshop will improve your voice by focussing for one weekend on the aspects of sound that are often overlooked: resonance, texture, timbre, overtones. Whatever level of experience you are at, this work will increase your singing skill: Beginners will be surprised about the round and resonant sound that their voice will gain, and the ease of singing that comes with it. Experienced and professional singers will improve their ability to do precision-work in this area: Differentiating pitch, sound colour and resonance and working with both control and surrender on these points. And how to compose music, solo and ‘en groupe’ with these ingredients? How to create both soothing carpets of sound and grinding dissonant cluster-chords. How to develop the music together, how to dissolve your voice in a sea of sounds, but also make clearly defined choices and cut through the music with your own line of melody or sound.

In the cold month of December a workshop that will warm you up from the inside and get your whole body to resonate!

  1. Is it possible to only do the workshop on Sunday? (Saturday unfortunately doesn’t work out)

  2. Hi Gita, coming to the workshop only on Saturday would be possible, but coming only Sunday doesn’t make sense, as we build with the group on the work from Saturday.

    I hope another time will work out for you!

    Warm Greetings,
    Thomas
