YOUR RHYTHM, YOUR LIFE: Pulse Tools for the Total Musician

YOUR RHYTHM, YOUR LIFE: Pulse Tools for the Total Musician Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Join Grammy-Award-winning master drummer Glen Velez, vocal phenomenon Loire Cotler, and acclaimed cellist Eugene Friesen for a rare opportunity to expand your rhythmic awareness and project new dimensions of energy into your performance.

Frame drummers, instrumentalists and vocalists are welcome to join this special guided process of discovery into the
inner world of flowing time and creative collaboration.

Glen and Loire's innovative approach uses stepping, gesture and rhythm vocals as the basic tools for exploring pulse flow and time awareness. We then apply this knowledge to our instruments or voice in coached ensemble settings. Drums and shakers - essential shamanic instruments - help guide our sonic adventures. (Glen Velez Signature Series drums and shakers will be provided.)

Eugene Friesen, author of “Improvisation for Classical Musicians,” is known for catalyzing improvisation in group settings.
Participants in “Your Rhythm, Your Life” will apply new-found rhythmic skills in ensemble settings that encourage
free play, listening, responding and discussion.

This special weekend event will include classes, performances, conversation, jam sessions and ensemble work.

Topics will include:

▪ The impact of body movement and spatial awareness on our feeling for pulse, steadiness and the pure pleasure of rhythm

▪ How the different areas of our body influence how strongly we pulsate

▪ How our inner organs generate sound and pulse

▪ How rhythmic vocalizing changes our perceptions

▪ How the space around our bodies can be "tuned" to a greater resonance

▪ The role of language in our pulse explorations

Tools:

▪ Handance - simple body movements, combined with rhythmic cueing, rhythmic gestures and call/response interactions

▪ Overtone Singing - deep breathing while producing multiple tones

▪ Drum Language - konnakol, the ancient vocal art from South India

▪ Clapping Patterns - creating steady pulse and recurring rhythm cycles

▪ Interactive Play - fun and energizing group improvisation

▪ Sacred Motif in Improvisation - using pulse to guide your improvisation


Acknowledging the importance of context and environment in discovering the inner voice of every musician, Your Rhythm, Your Life will take place in the ambience of the Stone Church in Bellows Falls, Vermont, a sonic and aesthetic setting that coaxes new sounds and ideas from even experienced performers.

Time: 8/23/18 4:00pm - 8/26/18 1:00pm
Location: Stone Church Center, Bellows Falls
