EXTEMPORIZE is a musical sign language by Danish artist Nana Pi Aabo Larsen that can be implemented in both educational and artistic contexts.
We create music in the moment, improvising and exploring together, listening and communicating with each other. With the help of the signs, the participants are sensitized to sounds and noises and learn to perceive and listen in new ways. In this way, an orchestra is created from a multitude of sounds.
The workshop is for musicians of all levels who are open and curious to experience music in a new way. Previous experience in improvisation is not necessary.
* EAT THE FROG is a collective from Münster, consisting of artists Tobias Link and Stefan Schneider. Using their primary form of expression, improvised music, as a point of departure, they create a multi-layered, interdisciplinary platform. In various projects, EAT THE FROG contends with the meanings of improvisation and artistic expression and its role in society, and brings together artists and audiences into a dialogue.
