an interactive composition workshop, conducted by Gilda Lyons

In considering our every-day experience in terms of sound, we become aware of how inextricably linked our lives are to sonic stimulus and response. Through a series of group improvisations, we will follow imagery toward the sound that it inspires, consider the nature of the sounds we have conjured, organize them, and compose a new work together—our own, unique Soundpainting.
