Artèl: how to tell a story with a song
This workshop is in English
London based, Dutch-Zimbabwean pop-innovator Rina Mushonga is known for her genre-defying musical approach and buzzing eclecticism. She brings this approach to her artistic practice as a song-writer, music producer and theatre maker, often blurring the lines between the different story-telling disciplines in her drive for making fresh, thought-provoking and purposeful performances.
In this song-writing session, Rina invites you to bring your un-finished musical ideas, lyrics and sketches to what promises to be a dynamic and collaborative workshop. We all approach writing in different ways but it is our practice and experiences shared which can be a powerful key to unlocking unexplored pathways. With song-writing tips and exercises as well as group collaborative song-writing – we'll be looking at [your] song-structure, lyrics and music and the different ways we can tap into the stories you want to tell through music.
- The workshop is open to music practitioners from all genres.
- Please bring examples of your work and unfinished work to the session
- Please bring portable musical instrument(s) you use to develop your songs (laptops, audio interface, midi-players, guitars, headphones...)
- There will be a PA and microphones available
You enroll for one workshop. A workshop consists of two sessions from each 90 minutes. We offer you a free lunch in between the two sessions.
