Bassoon and movement. All four feelings.
Practice tracks for the group
Gentle. Flowing (loops only)
Serenity flow optimism (loops only)
Down-fall (loops only)
Exploring. Down-fall, gentle-flowing, gestures, serenity-flow-optimism
Down-fall test ideas for backing track. Bassoon to be added
Vocal exploring (very soft and in the noticing way)
We can do a vocal exercise based on each feeling. Set up improvisations – 30 seconds playing with the essence of each feeling. Playing with shifting from inner world, on the breath to outer world group communication.We will have rules to shift between: Musical sounds. Emotional body sounds. Abstract sounds.
