UPCOMING EVENTS

TERRACOTTA project is the common meeting point and inspiration of three musicians from Rethymnon, Crete. The musical material consists of compositions by Andreas Paragioudakis and is imbued with the special timbres and high musical level of this musical collaboration.

The way the three musicians create the musical atmosphere is unique. Through their deep communication, they invite the audience to a musical journey to the present of the wider East-Mediterranean area, full of memories, experiences and inspirations. The simple compositional forms open space for the development of sound worlds that touch the listener's senses. They create images that are directly connected to the Cretan nature. The delicate lines of the double bass combined with the particularly sensitive and at the same time dynamic interplay of the stamna (clay drum) and the piano create a Mediterranean chamber music aesthetic that incorporates the elements and timbres of tradition, jazz, rock and classical music without limiting itself to any of these genres.

AUS FREIER KEHLE

 —  —

Bildungshaus St. Arbogast, Montfortstraße 88, 6840 Götzis

Der freie, aus dem Moment geschöpfte Akt des Musizierens ist etwas, was in allen Epochen, Musikstilen und Kulturen anzutreffen ist. Es wiederspiegelt unseren ursprünglichen musikalischen Ausdruck. Erst einmal muss man frei werden – man muss einfach loslassen, damit die Inspiration einen anlächelt und einen über die eigenen Grenzen hinwegführt. Wenn man dabei über sich hinaus wächst und die Musik fliessen lässt, dann entstehen neue künstlerische Werke, die weit über das hinausführen, was wir als Musik begreifen – es entstehen Geschichten und Bilder. Die archaische Musik trifft auf die Moderne, jenseits stilistischer und ästhetischer Vorgaben und Erwartungen. Für die Improvisation braucht es auch Spiel-Räume, Spielregeln und Strukturen, das «ganz Ohr sein», ein «auf einander einstimmen», ein «ein-hören und er-hören». Improvisation ist immer auch eine Form der Kommunikation – es ist ein Spiel mit der Stimme mit verschiedenen Interagierenden. Aus diesem Spiel entsteht die Musik. Eine Woche nur den offenen Ohren und dem Augenblick folgen, ob mit dem Schwerpunkt auf Stimmentfaltung, auf Harmonie oder Rhythmus; jeder freie Streifzug kreiert aus der Unmittelbarkeit Unerhörtes. Da gibt es kein besser oder schlechter, kein Gelingen oder Scheitern. Es zählt nur das jetzt: die gemeinsame musikalische Reise. Wir arbeiten in der Gruppe, wo improvisierte Chormusik entsteht, kreieren Solos, Duos, Trios mit unseren Stimmen oder nehmen auch Instrumente dazu. Auch Elemente aus dem Theater oder aus dem Tanz können uns Inspiration für unsere Musik geben. Mehrstimmige Gesänge des ost-mediterranen Raums, Berggesänge Kretas und Elementargesänge des Balkanraums geben einen Einblick in eine weniger bekannte Vokalkultur. Leitung: Marcello Wick & Andreas Paragioudakis Stimm- und Körperarbeit. Arbeit an verschiedenen Gesangstechniken. Improvisation in der Gruppe, Ensembles oder Solo. A cappella und mit Instrumenten. Kursort: Bildungshaus St.Arbogast (Vorarlberg) Abschalten, zu sich kommen, Zeit haben und geniessen: Ruhe, Gesang und Musik, Natur. Das Bildungshaus St.Arbogast im Vorarlberg ist ein grossartiger Ort für Entdeckungen – sei es beim Lesen, sei es beim Spazieren oder Wandern und natürlich für das gemeinsame Singen und Improvisieren. Wir dürfen in der Kapelle mit ihre wunderbare Akustik singen Preise: Kursgebühr: 500.- €. (Preisreduktion für Studierende auf Anfrage) (Frühbucher bis 15.

The free act of making music, created from the moment, is something that can be found in all epochs, musical styles and cultures. It reflects our original musical expression. expression. First of all, you have to become free - you just have to let go so that the inspiration smiles at you and takes you beyond your own limitations. When you go beyond yourself and let the music and let the music flow, then new artistic works emerge that go far beyond what we think of as music. beyond what we understand as music - stories and images emerge. The archaic The archaic music meets the modern, beyond stylistic and aesthetic guidelines and expectations. Improvisation also requires play spaces, rules and structures, "being all ears", a "tuning in to each other", a "listening in and listening out". Improvisation is always a form of improvisation is always a form of communication - it is a game with the voice with different interactors. Music emerges from this game. A week of just following the open ears and the moment, whether the focus is on the development of the voice, on harmony or rhythm; each free foray creates the unheard out of immediacy. There is no better or worse, no success or failure. or failure. The only thing that counts is now: the common musical journey. We work in the group, where improvised choral music is created, creating solos, duets, trios with our voices or with instruments. with our voices or even instruments. Elements from theatre or dance can also dance can also give us inspiration for our music. Polyphonic chants of the Eastern Mediterranean, mountain chants of Crete and elemental chants of the Balkans of the Balkans provide an insight into a lesser-known vocal culture.
