- Sunday 15/4/18, 10 am – 6 pm: Sound Music & Rhythm Patterns workshop
Intuitive sound music is a new genre of contemporary music culture. It´s characterized by spontaneous created sound & rhythm patterns, that are inspired of the atmosphere of the moment.
„ I feel and realised many times that it is very important and necessary for any sound musician as well as sound healer and sound therapist to be able to keep on, up and through with a straight, tight, pulsating rhythm structure during an unknown timeframe “, Jens Zygar states.
He developed an easy to understand and, even more importantly, an easy to work with rhythm concept, that will allow anybody – especially those people who were told they don’t have “an appropriate musical feel“– to practice up to 8 different rhythm qualities after quite a short introduction. The concept can easily be transferred to any other sound instrument. This workshop day will increase your ability to perform on healing instruments in a way you have never ever thought of before. The class is suitable for professionals as well as for beginners. You will get to know contemporary sound instruments such as hand pans, crystal spheres, sansulas, the seven cosmic treasures and for sure the worlds most effective sound rattle.
There will be a basic introduction to the integration of voice and movements as well. The program of the day follows the group spirit in an intuitive way.
Jens Zygar is a well experienced sound & music researcher whose interest focus on the potential of free intuitive interactive sound music. He will teach some practical aspects of how to play and perform sound music in a communicative way, so it serves the purpose of the intention, which is creating the most beautiful spherical healing music.
All participants could bring their instruments of choice. It is also open to all those who don’t have an instrument; this day is an opportunity to try out new and exciting healing instruments.
