Somatics of Sound-Making & Sound-Listening: Workshop in Nature

We will work mainly with closed eyes, mostly in a natural outdoors environment such as woodland or more open setting.

The work aims to tune into how our memory, our proprioception, and our sense of tracking locations can be used to enhance sound-making or sound-listening.

We will also play with how our body surfaces contact the environment and create sound, and how this collaborates in dialogue with our peripheral selective listening. Working with eyes closed and in a less human-centred environment connects us further to our survival responses as a creative resource.

With practice we can choose more easily, using our sound-making and sound-listening skills, to alert, create distance or unite in momentum with others.
