Exploring. Down-fall, gentle-flowing, gestures, serenity-flow-optimism


Down-fall test ideas for backing track. Bassoon to be added


Vocal exploring (very soft and in the noticing way)

We can do a vocal exercise based on each feeling. Set up improvisations – 30 seconds playing with the essence of each feeling. Playing with shifting from inner world, on the breath to outer world group communication.We will have rules to shift between: Musical sounds. Emotional body sounds. Abstract sounds.
