human instruments – a workshop with international artist nick demeris, nyc

Presented by Circle Singing Melbourne

Saturday – Sunday 4 – 5 March

HUMAN INSTRUMENTS is a workshop that unlocks the power of the voice using techniques from improvisational jazz, freestyle rap, european clown, and the musical methods espoused by vocal master Bobby McFerrin,

Whether you consider yourself a diva of song or a novice of sound, this workshop will explore our greatest musical potential, harnessing the power of improvisation to release the music inside and become ‘Human Instruments’. Play with spontaneous singing, beatboxing, rap, vocal ‘sampling’, body percussion, and ultimately how to stand at the centre of a circle – turning human beings into instruments and sound into music.
