We will have different workshops this year. Look at the list carefully. Some needs registration some do not. The ones which needs registration: DEADLINE IS 15. of April 2018.
Experimental musical workshop
In the workshop participants try to listen and explore surrounding environment. What kind of sounds there is to find? How does the silence sound? Can any abandoned objects around be used as instruments? How can we response to the call of the natural soundscape using our own voice and body as an instrument? These are the main questions we concentrate, and try to solve them in action during the workshop. Earlier experience around music is not necessary. People of all ages can participate the workshop with their personal presence. During the workshop we will find a common way to play simple rhythms, encourage ourselves to use our voices and natural presence powerfully. In the end these elements will be combined to create an orchestra or "big happening" of the participants.
Workshop is led by musician/composer Otto Eskelinen. He has graduated from Sibelius Academy folk music department and worked professionally over 15 years around Finnish music scene, making music for theatre, circus and other performing art forms. Since 2013 he has led ethnofuturistic ensemble "The Mystic Revelation Of Teppo Repo". The group has published three studio albums and made music to the documentary film "The Nature Of My Heart" 2016 (Jaakko Ruuska)). DEOS NOT NEED REGISTRATION BEFOREHAND
