Hurdy-Gurdy workshops, Spielkurs Radis



In this workshop we’ll look into different playing styles and modes – for example pentatonic, Oriental, Indian, and African music, improvisation – and try out a variety of buzzing rhythms. A special focus will be put on Breton music, since the repetitive character of the tunes offers a great basis to explore new stuff. Another focus will be the hurdy-gurdy’s electro-acoustic potentials and how they can enrich the sound palette. Participants who have thus far only played acoustically will get first advice, while those with some experience in the field are invited to experiment with sound effects. Please bring your equipment (cables, devices, etc.)!

The workshop aims at advanced players who already have a long experience on the hurdy-gurdy.
I’ll splitt from time to time the class in smaller working groups, depending on the level and the affinities of the participants.
Please state your instruments keys and your equipment in the application.
