Event description

Description

The EYMF and ELJAM in association with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, welcome music educator Paul Griffiths for a session on working with BIG GROUPS. Paul often works with large groups (50 or more) at once - composing tunes using a number of approaches.

During the session, Paul will explore large ensemble music making using a mixture of:
  • rhythmic compositional frameworks
  • riff and bass line figures
  • cyclic harmonic backings
  • collective riff, melody and theme writing
  • conduction techniques
  • open/free improvisation


The session will be primarily instrumental but will also utilise vocal and body percussion where appropriate.
PLEASE Bring instruments (a small PA will be set-up)
