The workshops for children, during which the youngest participants will learn, play and improvise in the company of great musicians and unusual books, will be held on 25 and 26 October 2019 in three Greater Poland towns: Skoki, Wągrowiec and Krajenka.
Polish Society for Contemporary Music invites children aged 3-5 and 6-8 years old to participate in free improvisation classes together with their guardians. The musical guests of the upcoming workshops will be: Marcin Skaba (violin), Bartosz Smorągiewicz (saxophone) and Jarosław Siwiński (synthesizer). Adventure through improvisation with artists will be led by actor and director Grzegorz Ociepka.
The main idea of the project is to trigger graphic-inspired improvisations. Children will create their own stories based on picture books. The improvised fairy tales will be then "translated" into musical language under the guidance of the class leaders. Improvisation is the most basic, primary and joyful form of music performance, which is why the workshops combine children's creativity and imagination with books and contemporary music.In addition to playing with improvisations and books, children will learn various techniques of sound extraction, which expose its color and dynamic values, and will also be able to play drums on their own.
Participation in the workshops is free – the number of places is limited.
