Devising Music Workshop: Call For Participants

Devising Music Workshop: Call For Participants

Join Laura Bowler and hcmf// for a creative day in celebration of International Women’s Day! A multi-disciplinary musician and vocalist, Bowler will guide participants in co-creating a new piece of contemporary music. The composition will be written collaboratively, with participants sharing and combining personal ideas of identity. The workshop will explore many of the things that drive Bowler’s own practice, such as the physical nature of performance and the role of political activism in music.

There’s no experience necessary: participants of all musical abilities are invited to come along and help one another compose! All you’ll need to do is bring along an instrument of your choice – or, if you want, you can use your voice – and some written text that you feel reflects your identity in some way. This can come from anywhere – it could be anything from the co-ordinates on a map to a poem you like. Whatever inspires you!

The Devising Music Workshop will take place from 1 – 4pm on Saturday 7 March in the Richard Steinitz Building, University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, HD1 3DH (Room RSG/01). If you’re interested in attending the workshop, please sign up by emailing our Learning & Participation officer Abi Mitchell at a.mitchell3@hud.ac.uk.

This workshop is part of the Contemporary Music for All (CoMA) Festival 2020. CoMA is a biennial festival which offers opportunities in new and contemporary music for musicians of all ages and abilities.
