Harmony in the morning?! Yes please! Early birds will delight and late risers will get the blood going as the incredible, award-winning Greater Nassau Chorus teach everyone a few tags!

Vocal Painting (or “Mind Reading” In Improvised Music) with Merel Martens
Feb 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Vocal Painting (or “Mind Reading” In Improvised Music)

Mind reading? Well, that’s what it looks like to the untrained eye!

Merel Martens will teach you a series of subtle hand signals that allow groups to do the impossible, making improvised musical leaps together!

Everyone has these little ideas in their head: melody, rhythm, lyrics, etc. Merel helps you turn these ideas into actual music! To frame this, she uses Vocal Paining or “VoPa”. VoPa (created by Jim Daus Hjernoe) is a part of Sound Painting (created by Walter Thompson) and is a great tool to communicate non-verbally in (improvised) music.

The VoPa signs are also very usefull for working with repertoire!
