T37 Contemporary Communication

Anne Denholm

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


Weekend Course (Saturday & Sunday, 2 sessions per day 9.00am & 1.00pm)

We will explore beyond the traditional sound world of the harp and venture into free improvisation via games and exercises. We will also discuss how to communicate contemporary music and improvisation to audiences and how to go about forming your own interpretation of contemporary works. A part of the course will be dedicated to rhythm – working out more complex rhythms, building your inner pulse, expressing rhythm effectively to audiences. We will also explore graphic notation and how liberating it can be! Join me for an adventure in contemporary communication!  Suitable for all harps. Participants are welcome to bring any contemporary pieces they are working on - notated or not.
