FREEING THE IMPROVISER WITHIN: The Art and Fun of Call & Response
An afternoon of explosive fun with dynamic trombonist Steve Swell who will perform a short solo performance demonstrating the number of ways he likes to improvise with plenty of funk, alternate techniques, circular breathing and explosive riffs.
All kids and adults will then be invited for a number of improvising game pieces, including a call and response that anyone regardless of instrument can join. Musicians of all proficiencies welcome as well as dancers, poets and other dreamers. In addition, you will become a human sound sculpture and a human sound machine.
Please bring an instrument or something to make a sound with. Your voice, body, hands, paper. A limited amount of percussion instruments will be available.
Steve has taught classes in musical performance, composition and improvisation to all age groups in NYC public schools as a teaching artist
