Nourishing Harmonies

Nourishing Harmonies:  workshops to share experimental voice work

What is it?
We invite you to join us in an opportunity to sing outside of the box.  We offer you sublime harmonic experiences, vocal experiments and no-strings-attached on-the-spot song-making all wrapped up in our usual warm circle.  You'll leave the workshop feeling well-fed with reverberating sound-food.

What to expect
You can expect more chanting and fewer long songs; no word sheets but a little more group improvisation; extended periods of singing the same phrases yet even more encouragement to try out new ones too.  We want to you to be able to immerse yourself in the whole group experience without being distracted by complicated lyrics or melodies.

Circle Singing is a type of group improvisation where no one individual is ever put on the spot to 'invent' a part.  The leader stands in the middle of the circle and provides small groups, one at a time, with parts to sing.  The song gradually builds up around the circle creating harmonies and rhythms entirely owned by the group.  Each song is unique and each circle builds a new sound-world.

Access & Preparation
You don't need to bring anything with you except a willingness to be generous with your time and with your voice.  Leave you preconceptions at the door and arrive to share in a peaceful yet energizing two and a half hour workshop.

Wear loose comfortable clothing so that you can use the space to your advantage.  Sitting or lying on the floor may be the best way to enjoy a particular piece of music.  You may want to bring a blanket or a cushion to get really relaxed.

Dates and locations of forthcoming workshops are:  29th November 2020 (Venue TBC), 21st Mar 2021 in Wanborough, 18th September 2021 (Venue TBC) and 13th November 2021 (Venue TBC)
