Finding Folk for Music Composition Workshop w/ Jeff Morton

Workshop participants make field recordings in the local environment, searching for silent spaces, noisy spaces, and dynamic spaces. The recordings become material for composition exercises where participants play and record on simple and makeshift musical instruments. No previous musical experience is required. Working together, we will create music in different group combinations, through games and composition exercises where recorded sound, written music, symbols, and other musical directions become scores for collaborative sound making. Through the workshop we will explore different kinds of music notation, written, non-written, graphic, and sound-based scores and their interpretation in performance.

Jeff Morton is a composer, musician, and media artist. Jeff studied music composition and theory at the University of Saskatchewan (B.Mus 2003) and at the University of Victoria (M.Mus 2008). Jeff’s artistic projects are often playful, experimental explorations of sound or image, communication, written forms of music, and other compositional processes using found objects or materials. In performance, composition, and installation, his work has been presented by ensembles and in galleries and festivals across Canada and internationally.

Participatory Improvisation Session w/ Sound of the Mountain

Join Sound of the Mountain for a participatory workshop and improvisation session at PAVED. The duo of Montreal-based Elizabeth Millar and Craig Pedersen works with closely amplified clarinet and trumpet, creating long-form improvisations based in sound textures. In the workshop they will introduce their approaches to collaborative improvisation, use of composed elements, form, structure, extended techniques and amplification. Workshop participants are invited to bring their instruments (or voice) to play with the group. The workshop will prioritize playing and creating work together in an inclusive environment.

***Participants are asked to bring their own amplifiers if possible***

“Should you be without any information and listening to this music, you could easily believe this is some electro-acoustic music; maybe of objects pushed around on a carpet, but then heavily amplified; very soft in volume but very powerful at the same time. This is some fascinating stuff.” -Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly.

Montreal-based Sound of the Mountain (Elizabeth Millar & Craig Pedersen) plays amplified clarinet and trumpet. Since forming in 2015, they have developed a sound language that merges acoustic and electronic textures through amplification. Making a point of collaboration they have worked with numerous Canadian and international artists, most recently Japanese improvising veterans Toshimaru Nakamura and Tetuzi Akiyama. They have played over 165 concerts together in the last four years, coast-to-coast throughout Canada and in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico and Australia.
