Creative Music Intensive 2022
Aug 14th – 28th, 2022 | In-person & Online Program
Creative Music Intensive is a two-week hybrid ( in-person & online ) program which will be held from August 14th – 28th at Arts Letters & Numbers. The program is open to both amateur and professional musicians in any genre. Participants will be immersed in the creative process of making and performing music, exploring new approaches and developing individual and collaborative works as creative artists.
This unique program will be led by Michael Harrison and co-taught by Del Sol String Quartet, Aleksandra Vrebalov, Elliot Cole, Payton MacDonald, and Arts Letters & Numbers founding director David Gersten, with special guest Terry Riley. They will each host weekly classes on site or via Zoom, give one-on-one lessons, as well as facilitating potential collaborations with co-participants and a wide range of artists affiliated with Arts Letters & Numbers.
Topics to be covered during group and private classes include composition and improvisation; performance, recording and career strategies in the current environment; Indian classical ragas, rhythms and techniques; modular synthesis, music programming; developing interdisciplinary work and collaborations.
At the conclusion of the program participants and visiting artists/teachers will present a public performance (live and online). Participants will have the opportunity to compose a new work for a reading by Del Sol, who will select from these works which ones they will perform on the concert. Alternatively participants may perform or arrange for other musicians to perform their work. This concert and other events are opportunities to explore new performance practices and material in a safe and welcoming environment.
