Improvising Strategies for Large Ensemble
This interdisciplinary workshop will examine a number of techniques you can use when improvising within a large group. We will focus on global awareness and listening, while exploring strategies for achieving maximum variety and avoiding stagnation. We will also discuss concepts such as foreground/background, solo/support, and intention/non-intention.

This workshop is open to anyone interested in free improvisation, whether you are a beginner or intermediate or professional. And it is not just for musicians: the workshop is also for dancers, live video art, acting, and any other artform where improvising is important.

As an example of ways in which people from different media can work together, I will use sections of “I, Norton,” an “opera” for improvisers that includes hand cues, graphic notation, and strategies. Other examples will come from the music of Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton, Butch Morris, and even Indonesian gamelan.

You do NOT need to know how to read music to take part in this. Everyone is welcome.

So please come and join me for a series of fun workshops, where it is likely you will work and collaborate with new people (and hopefully find common ground for future collaboration).
