Friday 28 September 2018, 6pm, OTO Project Space
HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD is a vocal workshop led by Vivienne Griffin that combines breathwork, extended vocal technique, with a focus on the voice in the context of contemporary art/sound practices.
This two-hour workshop draws on references from breathexperience© (Middendorf technique), locating resonance in the corporeal, somatic awakening, vocal awareness, extended vocal technique such as vocal fry, a drone choral experience, laughing, lyrical repetition and circular singing (Joan Le Barbara’s technique in circular song). These practical techniques use the body as a site to explore abstract sound and the physicality of language.
The workshop will be recorded with binaural microphones and participants will be given a copy of this recording.
You don’t have to be able to sing to join this choir.
This is a group experience; the workshop is open to all levels of singers and non-signers.
Short break at 7pm
8pm finish - Cafe Oto for a drink
