A workshop for animated graphic score, electronics, acoustic instruments and voices with composer and instrument maker Wojciech Rusin
Friday, 31 March, 15:00 @ MoTA Lab
In this workshop, you will interpret an animated graphic score, which uses images, shapes and pictures instead of notes. Composers use graphic scores because they allow them to express musical ideas that could not be described by traditional notation. Participants should have some experience with playing their acoustic instrument and should bring their instrument along. The score will feature instrumental parts and sections for singing, whistling and other extended voice techniques. Ten 3D printed ocarinas will be provided for the participants.
Send your application to email@example.com with the subject 'Workshop by Wojciech Rusin'.
