Event description

Description

We are a directed improvisation choir, drawn from adventurous members of the public interested in finding their creative voice through guided improvisation. Jenni Roditi, artistic director, uses hand signals from which you create your own material and you are given indications as to the role in the music you are to play. This will change as each piece goes on, so in any one piece you might sing several roles.

We especially welcome newcomers to jump in for these one day intensives. If you have some experience this intensive will be a great spring board for you to develop your improvising, and a super taster of the choir.

Members of the choir are from all walks of life and some are quite new to improvisation. We are often joined by one or two members of TIC, TOC's sister; a professional choir.

“Wow! What a stupendous soundscape these amazing choirs produced. A really captivating evening of polyphonic music with much heart and soul from all the singers. MORE PLEASE!” - audience feedback from Nov 2016.

Building on the progress TOC has made since beginning in March 2016 this is a chance to get down to some more in depth work using the fun techniques Jenni has been evolving for rehearsing, including the exploration of transpirations - a notion Jenni is exploring whereby one is learning and developing skills through collaboring musically with more experienced vocalists, including Jenni or members of her team from the professional choir TIC. A transpiration is like the process of osmosis or in biology where the plant drinks the water and then returns droplets to the air through its leaves. This is a process of intuitive exchange and deep listening. There will be also be rehearing in choir formation and plenty of time for small group practice - and a focus on solos and duets often growing out of transpirational practice.
