Participants should have completed a 5 days workshop or 10 hours of individual lessons of Roy Hart voice work.
Before and beneath singing and speaking – which are often considered to be at the top of the list of human achievements – there is the phenomenon of human sounding. Sound is the layer beneath the structures of words and notes that we call ‘speech’ and ‘song’; it is the soil which actually enables the flowers of speech and song to exist. Words and notes are cultural. Sound is primal!
‘SoundingSinging’ is a seriously playful – and playfully serious – way of exploring the sounds of your voice. That means becoming aware of the many different ways the same notes and words can be sounded. We will explore the sources of human sound in our body, emotions and imagination, in group exercises and games, as well as individual work.
Imaginal explorations will focus around the topic of the ‘HumAnimal’. We will guide your search for the animal inside of yourself; travel from human to animal sounds and vice-versa; playing on the borders of different vocal textures, timbres and tempos – broken, saturated sounds and clear sounds. Wolves and dogs, cows and elephants, birds, snakes and mosquitos, sheeps and goats, monkeys and whales, will be sources of inspiration.
This active imagination work will allow us to connect to primal forces, including the Four Elements, and above all to ‘Mama/Papa’ ie ‘Mother Earth/Father Sky’. Noah and Maryline will accompany your SoundingSinging HumAnimal journeys with piano, drums, and their own voices. Some traditional chants will be proposed, like ‘Earth my body, water my blood, air my breath and fire my spirit’.
