We propose to do a series of workshops (4+), focusing on different theme in each workshop, starting with nature; going from analogue technique, to digital… and coming to the pure human voice. Last workshop will be a combination between all the themes, followed by movement and musical direction. Each workshop is also set as unique. The experimental voice, inspired by the sounds of the theme, will enriched the Dialog of expression. While Sašo Vollmaier will work with your voices through musical and vocal direction, Susanne Weins will open and develop your vocal potential through the energy of body, breathing and movement. This workshop series is open to all, especially those, who like to dive into listening and creating unexpected and new world of soundscapes.
