How does LifeSong Work?
Every evening of LifeSong has two parts:
Physical Movement & Vocal exploration:
Participants use free movement to probe the interconnections between breath, motion, emotion and voice. This part of the evening is devoted to increasing the malleability of our vocal instrument by exploring 10 different parameters of voice production.
In the second half of the evening, participants explore the various themes of their lives by telling stories and singing songs that they, themselves, have written.
You don’t need to have musical experience to do Lifesong. We will work together to take the lines you’ve written and play with them, exaggerating the natural rise and fall of the spoken language, expanding and freeing your voice, until your uncontrived melody emerges spontaneously from the well of joy or pain, laughter or despair, anger or delight, that bubbles within you.
