Join Berlin’s KNM Campus ensemble and Estonian/British composer Elo Masing for an online development of a new work. With many parts of the work written specifically for everyday household objects, anyone is welcome to join in with the KNM campus ensemble and experience the creative process behind bringing a new piece of music to life!
This workshop will explore the sounds of everyday objects in our homes. We will work together on creating small structured improvisational atmospheres with these materials. This video shows an example of the kinds of household objects that will be used at the workshop (glasses, bowls, paper, cardboard, stones, and bottles). Please bring a selection of these objects with you.
You can register for the workshop via Hopin, the online platform for this year’s festival. Tickets are £2 for the workshop alone, or £7.50 for the full weekend of digital events.
