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.

Inhalt / Content

FELDENKRAIS is a method with which we can optimise our action sequences. It is used in dance, instrumental classes, acting, singing, to free playing from unnecessary tension, to organize movements more efficiently and thus improve performance.

It is a learning by movement and a learning by experience. In gentle, coordinated movement experiments we explore and harmonize movement.

After we have retuned the instrument “body”, we use the lightness and the changed kinesthetic feeling in the body to explore new and surprising ways of improvisation – with or without instrument, vocally or dance-wise.

Inhalt / Content

A Makam, the basic concept of all oriental music, is more than a scale. It includes rules of how to make use of the notes given. When these rules are followed, very different feelings can be created with the same scales or notes.

We will improvise together, starting with just a few notes and then, following the rules of the respective Makam, broaden the range. By doing this, we will develop new ideas of how to use the whole range of our scale and/or instrument and explore the richness of even single notes.

In the end, we will not only have gained ideas about the most common makams and makam concepts in general, but also a new vision on improvisation in general. All instruments and voice welcome.

Basic musical knowledge required.

Workshop language ist German and/or English according to the needs of the participants.

Inhalt / Content

Present Time Composition © (PTC) is a special approach to improvised music developed by Alan Bern. Music created with PTC combines the spontaneity of free jazz with the structural clarity of composed music.
In a step-by-step process that is literally consciousness-raising, musicians learn to recognize and act on their pre-musical impulses, then, with this knowledge in hand, to develop more and more complex musical structures while always remaining anchored to the level of impulse.
The philosophy and method of PTC are deeply informed by cognitive science, but the results are nothing less than breathtaking music. Alan Bern has taught PTC in music conservatories, institutes, festivals and to ensembles in Germany, Austria, Holland, Belgium, France, Canada and the USA.
This introductory workshop is open to all technically proficient musicians. No prior experience with improvisation is required. Participants of former PTC workshops are welcome.

Inhalt / Content

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 2021:
23.8. | 13.9. | 4.10. | 15.11. (14 – 16 h!)  | 13.12. (14 – 16 h!) | 17.1.2021
