Voice. Music. Language. Sound. Where does music begin and language stop?
What kind of musical sounds can we produce with our voices? Rhythm, melody and intonation are to be found in music as well as in language. Music is capable of overcoming language barriers, creating communication and mutual understanding where the many different languages of this world might create more obstacles than assistance. Making music and singing together, we transcend cultural and linguistic barriers and thus create quite new possibilities and perspectives for communication. Let us experiment together to find out
how language and voice can be employed, deliberately but in different ways, to create a very special sound experience!
