Hanko Creative Music and Sound Workshop

Evenemanget har redan ägt rum.
A workshop and masterclass of music in the beautiful seaside community of
Hanko will present students to new techniques of expression and improvisation on their
instruments in group playing situations.The workshop led by renown Finnish
saxophonist/composer Esa Pietilä and drummer/composer Harvey Sorgen from New
York USA, will cover topics that will enable all of us to more freely communicate the
music and sound we have inside of us. Very important is how all of this works in a group
playing situation where we are “speaking” to one another and creating a communal
vocabulary in sound together.

The course is intentionally without any musical "genre" and will mix insights of jazz,
classical contemporary music, ethno etc... ALL instrumentalists and singers are
welcome.

Please note, that the course is limited to 25 participants - therefore it ´s advised to
confirmn one ´s chair for the course in advance. Please follow the instructions below.

Some of the topics of the workshop will consist of:

“Focal Breathing and Intonation” - Becoming aware and learning to control
personal breath cycles. A study in how all of us have a unique, natural sound and
how that applies to ensemble playing and intonation.

“Rhythm, Melody and Dynamics (RMD)” – Understanding the relationship of
how RMD work together in defining how we approach playing written and
improvised music. In this section we will start to put together these aspects in a
totally unique piece of music.

“Non Linear Composition and Conducting Techniques” - This program will
introduce ways of writing music using various graphic notations in addition to
“Gesture Conduction.”Participants will write and conduct their own “spontaneous”
compositions to be played by all.

Learning Improvisation (in small & large groups) with rhythm, sound,
harmony & soundcolors - learning to use and adjust contrast & different textures
of orchestration with commucation in group playing situation. The masterclass
reveals tecniques and insights that one can not learn from books etc. The
teachers, Pietilä and Sorgen will also instruct how to improvise freely without any
pre- planned game plan, chords structures, tonality, forms or structures etc.

The course is executed in ”tailor made” form, depending on the number of
students and which instruments are attending the course, taking account the skill
levels of the students.
