This workshop is the first class of the Contemporary Improvisation (CI) Master Series.

The workshops in the CI master series are a great way to learn more about what we do in the CI department. Each workshop will be led by a different CI instructor or guest, and will feature different approaches to improvisation through various genres and styles of music. All are welcome to attend and participate.

Composition and Improvisation Workshop will be led by Lautaro Mantilla.

This workshop will be a laboratory of experiments and games, in which we will explore new ways of creating music and interacting with other musicians in the space around us. As part of this process, we will explore the power of the voice and the body as sound generators, and will work with musical instruments and other objects as we create an original, communal, musical work. All are welcome to attend and participate, parents, children, instrumentalists, vocalists, and those who have never played music before…
