Community Sounds with Rully Shabara - Body Voice Centre - 23 Jun 2016

Community Sounds at the Body Voice Centre Special Guest Rully Shabara (Senyawa) 23 June from 7.30pm

Everyone improvises and anyone can be creative. Creativity and improvisation help us connect better with each other and build stronger communities. Every Thursday night in June there is an opportunity to experience this by participating in collectively creating music.

We are very fortunate to be joined by world renowned musician and performer Rully Shabara for our session this week. In addition to his work with the jawdropping
experimental duo Senyawa , Rully is the developer of a technique for collective composition, Ruang Jagat . We have been
applying this technique during our own “Experimental Community Arts Events”, but to participate in a workshop led by Rully is an opportunity not to be missed.

Taking place at the Body Voice Centre in Footscray, this series of workshops operate at the intersection of performance and participation facilitators Paddy Gordon and Conor O’Hanlon identify as both experimental performers and community arts leaders, and seek to open up spaces that allow for inclusive engagement with cutting edge ideas around improvisation, spontaneous composition and music as play. This is a safe space to explore making weird noise.

As musicians and facilitators, improvisation and deep listening underpins and grounds our practice. Regardless of whether you are an experienced player or a beginner, come along and see how improvisation and musical free play can help build a sense of community and connection. There are no barriers whatsoever to participation – come and join us!

Community Sounds takes place Thursday nights in June from 7.30 to 9.30 at The Body Voice Centre, 50 Wolverhampton Street, Footscray.
$10 waged, $5 unwaged/student.
