When we are little, one of our first achievements is the ability to imitate the sounds made by animals.
– What sound does a cat make, a dog, a cow?
Toddlers encouraged by adults meow, bark and moo.
But what sound does a man make? How do they sound? What noises do they emit? And who imitates us?
During a two-day workshop, inspired by and accompanying the exhibition by the artist Ela Jabłońska, we will reflect on the sounds we make. I do not mean onomatopoeia, but all that does not belong to the language and is often considered “ugly” noises.
We will look for sonic similarities and differences between genres.
When are we closer to birds and when to amphibians? When and how do our audio spheres intermingle and when do they exclude each other? What human sounds do animals like and vice versa?
These are just some questions we will be reflecting on together.
Relaxation, attentive listening and conscious breathing will help us in our quest. We will try to write down the sounds we collect, creating non-note scores, and finally, we will try to play our music.
We will have instruments, non-instruments and our maws at our disposal. Hear you soon, mammals!
