"SOul*VOice*SOng - Your Voice to the Next Level" This workshop will
go from learning the basic elements of vocal improvisational sound to
singing in front of a full a cappella rhythm section; creating the
beginning sounds of a complete drum kit vocally to being part of a
rhythm section as a competent vocal percussionist. You will vocally
explore drumming instruments, rudiments and patterns indigenous to
Western and European music and polyrhythms from around the world.
This exploration will help singers become comfortable with various
meters by understanding the contrapuntal relationships that
make up these various rhythms, it will also help strengthen phrasing
and a sense of song form, emphasizing singing inside the time, a feel
invaluablein performance and improvisation.
Workshop Leaders take seminarians through an overview of
improvisation as it pertains to negotiating chord changes as well as
exploring intervallic scale-based soloing over one chord vamps, basic
blues and the chord progressions of popular songs.
We'll also explore the exciting ancient art form of CircleSinging
that is created in a sacred space allowing creativity to arise and
fears to melt away Finally, we dive into the possibilities of using
basic sound technology to morph and experiment with vocal sounds,
digitally capturing our favorite moments to tape to keep forever.
