Friday Morning sessions from September

GC_concerts_smallUpcoming! Regular singing/composing sessions on Friday mornings from September to December 2015.

We will do it in a two-week rhythm, and the sessions are meant for people who want to come regularly. You commit for a set of 8 sessions, so that we can deepen the work from one session to the next.
No specific singing background is required, just being ready to work intensely and with curiosity from your own voice, blending/contrasting with other voices. (more info on the Genetic Choir method here, other workshop dates are here).

We already have a great group of 8 singers who committed themselves to the dates.

Let us know if you would like to join as well.

PLACE: Studio Wladiwostok, Amsterdam, Java-Eiland.

DATES: every second Friday morning, from 4 September to 11 December 2015:
04-09, 18-09, 02-10, 16-10, 30-10, 13-11, 27-11, 11-12

TIME: 10:00-12:30

COSTS: 192,- euro (excl.VAT / 232,32 incl.gc_workshopcontent_button )

If you have never done a Genetic Choir workshop before, we ask you to do that first. Possibilities are 13/14 June or 13 September. Look here.

Dropping in per single session is only possible for very experienced Genetic Choir people. Get in touch with us first if you would like to make use of that possibility.

We are looking forward to this! If it works for us and you, we will continue it in 2016…   🙂

 

 


Genetic Choir sessions October + December

Hi there,

this Sunday is another Genetic Choir session, open to all singers from the Genetic Choir pool of soundmakers.

Title of the session: THE SAME

Inspired by my work at the moment around the theme ‘Doppelgänger’, we will look at the fantastically weird ways in which things can be “one and the same” in voice improvisation. I am totally hooked at the moment to this phenomenon. It’s the evil twin of the copy work we apply more often, and actually points at a mysterious connection where two (or more) voices that are on the surface not at all identical in what they are doing can be very much “the same” or doubles of each other. Creepy, he?

Explore it with me next Sunday,
2 October 2011 from 13:30-17:30
Place: Circuswerkplaats Boost

After that, the next session will be on 4 December 2011, 13:30-17:30 at Studio Wladiwostok (Azartplein, Amsterdam)

see you on Sunday,

Thomas

Session “The one and the many”

28th of August 2011 – 13:30 to 17:30 – studio Ubbergen in Marcipanis, Amsterdam

A whole session about Solo singers and the power of the group (swarm/flock behaviour).

Quotes for the session:

“Sometimes the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many.”

“Sometimes the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one.”

Both very true statements (a price for who knows who said them 😉  ) we’ll explore in the light of the Genetic Choir jungle of instant vocal composition.

Sessions are only open to Genetic Choir singers. If you’re new and you’d like to follow a workshop, see below or click here.
