duration 1 week
fee EUR 385

Investigating musical composition and production techniques this workshop will demonstrate how iteration and disintegration can be used to generate content, form and structure in all creative art fields.

This workshop is open for participants from all fields of creative work looking for alternative and original tools to generate content, material, form and structure in their work. Committed and regular attendance is required.

The many things that are used in our work have inherent layers which can all be exposed. Through developing an inquisitive relationship with these things we can apply their form and structure as well as derive techniques for compositional and creative processes.

Musical composition and production techniques will be the foundation for investigating concepts of processual repetition, patterns and loops. We will engage the imaginary and calculated potential of iteration and disintegration. Guided exercises in listening, imagining, formulating, converting and creating will help discover systems to apply to your own work.

This workshop is presented in cooperation with the Studium Generale at the University of the Arts. This means the course will be open to students of the University up to a maximum of 12 people. Thus the workshop-group is a mixture of regular students and international participants.
