"SPEAKING INSTRUMENTS, SINGING WORDS"®
The seminary and the workshop "From Africa to Brazil, sound travel through extraeuropean music"®, not accidentally called "Speaking instruments, singing words"®, carried out by percussionist Peppe Consolmagno, build up a musical itinerary through tone, sound, rhythm and voice.
It is in no way meant only for specialists, since a wider audience incluging children, old people, disabled and teachers can enjoy its results and profit of its stimula.
It aims at developing:
an interest towards extraeuropean
corporal music and the voice;
It is useful and advisable to supplement the workshop with an concert TIMBRI DAL MONDO ® by Peppe Consolmagno. The combination completes the proposal by permitting to complete Peppe Consolmagno's "Solo Performance" with a great finale in which those present will play on stage as musicians, each one with the established role during the workshop's days.
It is possible to equip a workroom for building instruments (ceramics, wood, bamboo and metal). In this case the availability of a place suitable for materials working and the presence of a teacher or a craftsman or an expert artist is required.
The seminary "From Africa to Brazil, sound travel through extraeuropean music"®, not accidentally called "Speaking instruments, singing words"®, carried out by Peppe Consolmagno is going to last about two hours and is subdiveded in this way: 1/3 recitative, 1/3 played, 1/3 questions and public's involution.
It is a matter of a concert lesson during which those present could listen to news, see the instruments, listen to their sounds an experiment with voice, body and rhythm.
The seminary turned to children has a different structure: the attention is pointed to the sound world and to symbols. It is welcome the presence and the partecipation of a psychologist and/or an educationalist.
