Time passes slowly… a Genetic Choir workshop coming up!

bd_georgeThere are many ways to look at time and rhythm, but we like the idea that it is in essence the musicians’ ability to create a certain type of time with their music, and to connect – in differing or same times – with fellow performers and the audience. The Genetic Choir ensemble will explore this unusual approach to rhythm and timing in a weekend workshop in June that will be open to anyone interested.

13+14 June 2015  —   RHYTHM AND TIME(ING)

Two full days, 10:30-17:00  /  110,- exBTW (130,10 incl.)   /  Amsterdam
 
“Marking and moulding the time that is passing”, that is one way to define what you do when working with rhythm in improvisation. Looking at it from a Genetic Choir point of view, we are less interested in counting rhythms and more interested in the simple exhilaration of singing in’many times’ (polyrhythms) or the thrill of falling together in the ‘same time’. 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!
