FERAL CHOIR WORKSHOP! WITH PHIL MINTON + CARL LUDWIG HÜBSCH
The MPS studio is pleased to welcome Phil Minton, a legend of vocal improvisation, together with Carl-Ludwig Hübsch, to Villingen for a workshop.
Phil Minton & Carl Ludwig Hübsch will be giving a Feral Choir / Improvisation workshop on April 26th, aimed at those interested in improvised singing but also explicitly at the unstudied, amateur or amateur who want to break cover with their voice and musicality.
The mixture of “educated” and “uneducated” voices is a fruitful basis for a music in which everyone is and must be a beginner in the focus of the improvisational moment.
Everyone is welcome. Also people with voice break, whisperers, voice quandaries or vocal despots.
The goal of the workshop is the development of personal vocal qualities beyond traditional singing, i.e. including everyday or even “uncultivated” sounds (=>feral = wild, cruel).
15 participants will improvisationally explore extended vocal techniques, everyday voice, grunting, rasping, whispering and breathing.
THE PARTICIPATION FEE ALSO ENTITLES YOU TO ATTEND THE STUDIO CONCERT ON 27.4.2023 WITH PHIL MINTON, HARALD KIMMIG AND CARL-LUDWIG HÜBSCH. ATTENTION: THE TICKETS ARE FOR THE EVENTS ON 26.4. AND 27.4.PERSONAL AND NON-TRANSFERABLE.
