BEWARE! WE HAVE A LIMIT ON THE ENROLMENT FOR BOTH WORKSHOPS
My project is special because ...
did you ever think about what it actually was that made and makes you make music happen? what got you into actually loving music ? how music sang, floated and sounded itself into your life? what music actually really is besides «right» and «wrong» notes , loud and soft sounds? groovy beatz and noisy drums ? performance and skills? how and where actually a specific sound is given birth? how long a break needs to last and what a pause is actually good for? what it actually really is that moves and literally touches peoples hearts ? how musicians are often trained to perceive music and what they were taught to be aware of? and what maybe flying under a trained musicians radar because they are so accupied with proving something to an audience and / or to themselves, sidetracked about rights and wrongs, judging and all that noisey and in the end really most likely not so very important stuff?
we will try to really get into the heart and source of the matter, to experience magic, the energy and the spirit of making music happen in discussions, jams, playing music, performances, meditations, walks, talks, lectures, listening and guiding each other to the roots of the often even healing power of music and the energy, that is capable of touching hearts and souls beyond purpose and reason and makes your asses and booties shake.
This is what we need backing for.
Since we are doing this the very first time and since we are basically working without any public funding and the travel, accomodation and fees for the lectures and teaching are quite a hurdle in making this a true success for each and everybody involved, and since at this point we have absolutely no clue of how many people will join us, we need your generous support to help us, not only to make this venture work out but to make it a stepping stone for the years to come.
