Musician 3.0 Presenting Kobranie: A Course about Conducted Improvisation

A Course about Conducted Improvisation. 

In this intensive course we will work on music improvisation, according to the method of Kobranie. You will learn about musical leadership, conduction, instant composing, free improvisation, creativity in music improvisation, associative playing and thinking, collaboration in music and much more. The participants form the ensemble which works on these skills in both a practical and theoretical way. The course is open for all instruments and vocalists.

Kobranie is a method developed by (a.o.) Esmée Olthuis and, amongst other methods, uses as a basic improvisation tool within the department Musician 3.0/Music Performance Artist, a bachelor department of HKU Utrecht Conservatory. The main thing about this method is that it works with groups of improvising players and a processor. There are about a hundred directional musical signs to be used by the processor as well as the players. The focus is to become a collaborative team with players and processors and make music that can only be created in the moment.

We will work on musical improvisation in a genre-transcending matter; all styles and musical backgrounds are included, all kind of players are included. Creative processes will be leading in, and part of our group improvisations and training and experimenting. There is ample space for your own ideas about musical improvisation, composition en creative processes. We will work on your creative and improvisational skills through exercises and assignments, theory sessions, articles to read, and much more. It is not so much your level of playing that matters but rather the creativity of your ideas that lets the music flow.
