Véronique and Maryline invite you to approach vocal improvisation as a path to self-knowledge, leading to a deeper, more authentic relationship with yourself, with others, and with the world. Both singers and improvisers they will accompany you as you allow your inner music to be expressed through improvised singing. They will provide tools to help with instantaneous composition – be it physical, vocal, or musical – through intuitive listening, use of rhythm, intention, characters, relation to silence, contrasts, etc.

You’ll explore concepts such as melody, unison, counterpoint, or gibberish. Musical inspiration will reveal itself as you open up to your breathing, to your emotions and sensory perceptions, and to the images and stories of your imagination. Moments of in-depth research will alternate with playful games, leading you to explore the range of registers, places of resonance, and the various textures of your voice, to nurture your imagination.

In this space of artistic freedom, as we develop our listening, deepen our presence, and savour the pleasure of sounds – mindful in the moment of what wants or needs to be said or sung – we will share our “aliveness” in the present moment and give expression to our limitless vocal potential. The workshop will include physical and vocal warm-ups, individual and group lessons, vocal exploration, meditations, and improvisations.

Musical instruments are welcome !
