Listening to the World as Music

In our daily lives, we live in a visual world. The sounds we hear around us accompany the sights we see. Whether we hear a bird sing or a car engine approaching, we LOOK for what we are hearing. While this habit is vital to our survival, it causes us to miss the beauty of the sounds around us and how they work together to create SYMPHONIES OF PLACE. In this workshop you'll learn how to experience the world as music - to hear sounds musically, noticing how they fit together as a piece of music our MOTHER NATURE is creating every moment. Using ideas borrowed from pioneering composers and educators WA Mathieu and Karen Rosenbaum, we will explore the musicality of nature itself, and our existence as both spectators and participants in that music.
