Junk Music & Sound Experimentation Workshop
SATURDAY, FEB 4 — Doors at 2:30 PM; Workshop begins at 3:00 PM
Music is everywhere, if you know how to listen for it: right outside the window, coming out of our clothing, and available in the objects of everyday life.
In this workshop, participants are guided through a series of listening exercises, rhythm games, and sound improvisations to develop the ear, as well as to gain experience in being part of an ensemble. Participants will then learn to make a variety of functioning musical instruments and noisemakers from common household items and garbage. For both the accomplished musician as well as the novice, these explorations of the uses of non-traditional sound are accessible and fun.
Justin Lander, a lifelong Junk Musician, and author of How to Make Junk Instruments has been leading junk music workshops for over fourteen years. He is a co-founder of Modern Times Theater and Vermont Vaudeville. He also plays the bicycle pump.
FREE & Open to the Public! Space is limited; advance registration encouraged.
