Learning how to improvise and deepening improvisational abilities:

our events for improvisation aim at beginners and advanced players, amateurs and professionals, young and old. We offer classes dealing with music improvisation for instruments, voice, sound objects as well as improvisation in movement, theatre, visual arts and poetry. You can choose between weekend-workshops or regular courses. Also, you can book a course as as group (see offers for groups). For experienced players we have quite a few continuous ensembles, some of which are still open for new members.

Details || Registration form

As a pianist and sound researcher, Magda Mayas has been working for 20 years on how preparations, amplifications and objects can expand the sound possibilities of the instrument. She did her doctorate on this topic and has presented her work many times in workshops. Since 2019, she has been head of the improvisation department at the Lucerne School of Music.

In our series Workshop spezial, in which we invite important protagonists of the international improvisation scene to a concert and a workshop, Magda Mayas will present various methods of how objects and preparations can be used as multi-sensory tools in improvisation. The personal relationship to one’s own instrument forms the starting point for developing, expanding and internalising instrumental techniques for a respective individual “timbre vocabulary”.

The workshop is aimed at advanced improvisers, all instruments and voices are welcome.

For this event, the 2G-Plus rule applies, i.e. only vaccinated and recovered persons may participate. In addition, distance is mandatory and we ask all participants to take additional tests (tests are also available on site in the explo). In return, the mask requirement is waived.

Welcome to our monthly meeting for makam-based improvisation!
Once a month on Sunday, we will meet at noon to play and improvise together in a given makam or two for two full hours. The improvisation will be lead by Tayfun Guttstadt on the Ney. Theoretical aspects will be worked on, too, but the focus is on playing together and feel the mood of the respective makam. Typical forms of oriental music will also be introduced, everything by playing and feeling.

All instruments including voice and all levels welcome.  
Can take place again with up to ten people.
 

Dates until January 2022 (Sun 14.00–16.00)

Inhalt/Content

The ritual of Authentic Movement and Voice offers you a powerful space which invites you to access your creative resources as well as the individual and collective unconscious and facilitates a deep contact to silence. Movements and sounds emerging from that silence can be surprising and extraordinary as well as simple and effortless – a journey through different spheres, a discovery of possibilities reaching far beyond the personal, relating us back with our primordial being and our knowledge of healing.

The clear structure of the Authentic Ritual, the time arrangement, the power of the energetic circle, the witnesses who attend the events regardfully and compassionately and the concluding feed-back-circle offer a safe and trustful space. In this space anything that wants to emerge from the moment can actually be expressed. The feed-back-situation opens the opportunity to become conscious of and integrate the experiences and anything that has arisen from the subconscious.

Mostly we move with closed eyes and without music. Diving into the inner space and freeing ourselves from judgement happens easier without visually referring to the outside. Leaving out music and, thus, a tendency for mood and rhythm, enhances listening to our own impulses. Attending and witnessing ourselves and others in authentic expression can be a touching and inspiring experience.
The Authentic ritual is initiated by a warm-up, leading us into the body, the voice and the awareness of the moment.
This Workshop is as well an introduction to the practice of authentic movement for newcomers – who just need to have an affnity to movement expression and daring the unknown (no dancer’s skills necessary) – as it will be a deepening of the practice for those, who are already experienced in AM.

This workshop has to be cancelled due to the current Corona regulations.
