The aim of this intensive workshop is to empower our listening processes through the learning of theories, practices, and scores produced by the 20th century experimental music scene to answer the question “What also could music be?”.
The action of listening and its fundamental role in the creative process will be the core of our working session. This workshop is open to anyone who wants to approach ways and methods of experimental music: no prior knowledges are required.
