From Musicking to Transmusicking by Andrea Bravo, Nela Brown and Tuna Pase

On July 20, Hangar hosts a collaboration between Andrea Bravo (creative technologist), Nela Brown (sound artist) and Tuna Pase (musician), who are part of the Female Laptop Orchestra (FLO) project, that will combine a workshop about improvisation, collaborative music making and telematics and a performance, in which the workshop participants will be invited to participate.

During the workshop we will discuss opportunities and challenges of collaborative music making with performers which are co-located (in the same space) and/or distributed (streaming sound over the internet), what tools you might use, how you would prepare for such a performance, and how you would document the event. To participate in the workshop/ performance, please bring your musical instrument (this could also be your voice), laptop, headphones, any cables, software and audio hardware you are using to make noise/ sound/music.
