Keynote: Fireworks in the musical brain
6th Oct 2018 9:00 am - 10:00 am
As conductors sound's resonance relates directly to how we move. We will explore ways to identify and release tension, increase fluidity through whole body awareness, and create authentic and connected gestures that result in beautiful sounds and expressive phrasing. We will observe and hear models of expressive conducting with gestures that are connected to sound, and we will work on expanding our aural imagination and gestural vocabulary. Laban, Tai chi, mime, and other movement approaches will be explored as they related to conducting. Finally, we will find ways to achieve peak performance while avoiding injury. This session is geared towards conductors of all levels and genres.
