The Polish Society for Contemporary Music invites children for the free improvisation workshops "Tell me a Story", which will take place on 28 September 2019 in the Municipal Cultural Center in Nowa Ruda. During the musical meetings, the youngest participants will learn, play and improvise in the company of great musicians and extraordinary books.
The musical guest of the workshops will be the Trillingen Duo, which consists of multi-instrumentalist Iwona Jędruch playing the gongs and sound bowls, and double bassist Małgorzata Kołcz. Adventure through improvisations together with the artists will be led by composer and pianist Jarosław Siwiński. The organizers invite children aged 3-5 to learn, play and improvise from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.; children aged 6-8 years – from 12:00 to 13:30 p.m.
The main idea of the project is to trigger graphic-inspired improvisations. Children will create their own stories based on picture books. The improvised fairy tales will be then "translated" into musical language under the guidance of the class leaders. Improvisation is the most basic, primary and joyful form of music performance, which is why the workshops combine children's creativity and imagination with books and contemporary music.In addition to playing with improvisations and books, children will learn various techniques of sound extraction, which expose its color and dynamic values, and will also be able to play drums on their own.
