Svamp Helsinki, kesäkuu 2011
music : sound : workshop
19 June, 2011 00:00 15:00 - 18:00
part of project: Svamp
presented by Äänen Lumo

Svamp is a monthly workshop for music improvisation, organized as a collaboration between Ptarmigan and Äänen Lumo. It does not involve money, careers or obligations - only interpersonal and sound relationships. Svamp sessions may range from free collective improvisation to directed exercises or game-playing. You do NOT have to be a professional or trained musician - just someone with an interest in sound, an open mind, and the ability to listen.

The session is open to anyone interested - please bring with you something to make sound with (an acoustic or electronic instrument, voice, objects/devices etc). We'll meet at Chamber music hall (Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu 9) at 3pm on this week's Sunday. If the front door is locked, I'll be waiting there from around 14:55 till 15:05. If you suspect you'll come later than that, contact us.
