Workshop « Sons et formes du bois » ©
(For schools and music schools)
Designed for a child public, musicians or not, amateurs, singers, instrument players or dancers, Le Concert Impromptu offers workshops that mix sound and musical, gestural and plastic expression, using all sorts of instruments and all shapes of wood.
Through the observation and the proposed experimentations, the trainees will access a global vision of the usage of wind and percussion instruments made from wood. More than an apprenticeship, it is a sensory approach through the imaginary and the joys of sharing.
Common and traditional instruments will be presented to the children, along with their first functions in the important stages of a society. The musicians will then explore the various methods of playing, the various ranges and the unexpected potentials of the instruments and the voice. In link with the show Woods created in the open-air, the musicians offer a gestural work around walking, listening, sight which will be completed by a plastic art activity centered on "land Art"
