Experimental Songwriting

miss_chief's picture

In this class we will be experimenting with writing in the moment- which (musically) means no writing at all.

Each participant will bring his or her instrument of choice- even if it's "just" their voice, and we will play with a variety of methods- everyone "passing the feather," (and we will play with this idea as well). I (Miss Chief) will "host" (teach) the class, by gentle guiding/leading...

Any ability/experience level is fine, as long as each individual maintains respect for each other. If someone is unbearably off, and our ears hurt, we may need them to take a break for a few minutes! Hopefully, you know how to play your instrument somewhat! ;)

Ideally, we would have the equipment with which to record our "sessions/"classes, and eveyone would get a copy via CD ( - though it would probably be more efficient to compile the recordings and give everyone a copy on the last day of class).

This would provide a relaxed, encouraging environment for all walks of talent to collaborate with a variety of people they may or may not have ever met before. A class for the adventurous musician- please come with an open mind and a positive attitude- this should be fun!
