19 - 24 Juillet 2016Following the Voice : Creative Paths into MusicChristiane HOMMELSHEIM & Audrey PERNELLregister

Directed by Christiane HOMMELSHEIM et Audrey PERNELL, with guest musician Andrés Zarà*

Hours: 36
Participants: 14
Price: €540
Open to all

Let your voice lead you to your music!
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to discover what “music” means within your voice, and how to allow your own music to emerge. We’ll explore both individually and collectively, tuning into our shared human necessity for song: to express, connect, and create, and enjoy the pleasure of singing together! Through guided vocal and musical improvisations, we’ll travel to different “places,” new territory in our voices beyond the areas that we habitually use. When we allow ourselves to experiment, observe, and accept these vocal worlds without expectation, we can develop the capacity to feel intuitively where our voice wants to go. In this way, we learn to “follow the voice” and its creative impulses toward the melodies and stories hidden within the sound.
Follow your voice…discover your music.

The workshop will include physical and vocal preparation, individual lessons, and group dynamics, both a cappella and with piano accompaniment.

Prior musical training is not required.

In this workshop we aim to explore each individual’s creative space through voice and dance, following the thread of emotions and images and giving them expression.

We will work in studios, with time for individual work, and also out side, using inspiration from the countryside around. How are voice and movement affected by nature and the elements – for example down by the river or by the light of the sunset? And how can we best integrate these influences in our own creativity ?

When we work out of doors, we may have different working hours.

Travel between spoken voice, body movement and singing voice to serve the personal and authentic interpretation of a song. You will connect to the intuition of your voice and movements to deepen your expressive potential. Mariannes artistic singing practice allows you to feel how each song tells a story and solicits your full vocal presence. Esther’s artistic dance and music experience provides new ways of using the body and helps with the rhythmic-musical development of your songs. We offer body and breathing exercises to raise awareness for internal and external body perceptions and to bring some light into technical aspects to the vocal act. We will also bring in polyphonic world songs to be able to enjoy sharing a common musical experience. Each participant should come with a song learned by heart (one dear to his heart!).

Work on bringing the emotional engagement of acting to singing, and the structural beauty of music to acting. A first step on the path to find the emotions connected to a song, playing with the lyrics and the music. Discovering what the song brings to us and what we bring to the song. Is it possible to be totally in an emotion yet know that it is not controlling you? We will alternate between free improvisation and strictly following the structure of the song. We will play with different interpretations and meanings in order to find a deep personal connection to it. We also work on how to deliver a song to an audience. We will learn three songs with an emphasis on one of them which will be “your song”. The workshop will include: Warm-ups of the body, voice and imagination, individual singing lessons and group ateliers of music and theater.

« Hello Ducks ! »

In French, a false note or a wrong note is called a “duck”… Well ! Here is a workshop for all those who can’t take part in choral singing because they think they sing out of tune, or they don’t like their voice and feel uncomfortable when they speak or sing.

I gave such a workshop ten years ago in Malérargues, and it was such a success that I propose it again, with Joao Charepe, voice teacher and singer from Portugal, and Olivier Philippson, musician.

Through physical training and various exercises and explorations, you will use your voice and become more familiar with it.

We will spend time listening, and when we listen, we start to hear things, and then we begin to understand how things work. In French the expression “on s’entend bien” (literally : “we hear each other well”), actually means “we get on well”.
And so we shall embark on a little boat, and enjoy ourselves in a large group (12 persons), smaller groups and individual work. During this workshop, you will choose a song and Olivier will accompany you, with guitar or accordion. Please bring a score or a recording.

We shall court the muses, we will amuse ourselves.

No fear, only fun !… (and a bit of work !)
Think of wearing comfortable clothes, and come without pre-conceived ideas about your voice.
Be welcome.
