Summer Free Music School - 16th - 25th July
(from Wednesday till Saturday)
The Music Camp has raised a generation, who return to us year by year, and whose members are ready for new approaches. In 2020, dedicated to them, we start the Free Music School, which works in a different way.
Morning courses (10 am – 1 pm)
Participation in the morning courses is obligatory, but everybody can decide which ones to choose. These workshops are not neccessarily aimed to produce performances, they are more for experience and learning. Attendees are welcome to change their workshops, try out more of them.
Éva Bodrogi – Goodtobegood
The main goal of the workshop is to build self-awareness and also self-confidence while making music, so that we can maximize our presence on stage at music school exams or even at public concerts. Through conversations, games, music situational exercises, we build the mechanism of singing / instrument playing, the stage presence, and discover the secrets of performing music together.
Ádám Darázs – Music Recycling
The purpose of the workshop is exploring creative ways of reworking musical ideas. After listening and analyzing music pieces, we reuse their base concepts and we make new compositions or improvisations with them.
Csaba Hajnóczy – Soudscape composition
The course is built up around two threads. One is electronic sound- and music-editing, the other is the observation and recording of the soundscape, the sounds of the surrounding world. Participants can experiment with their ideas, how to record the sounds of nature, and what can be done with them. The couse gives a basic introduction to Ableton Live digital audio workstation.
Using your own laptop is fine, but we will provide computers for those who won't bring. You can record with your phone, but we will provide more specialized sound recorders and hydrophones (underwater mikes.)
Atom Tamás Bernáth – Community-forming creation workshop
Grow in process of path-clearing mass-impro; follow our own footsteps and walk on others'.
Coming through inspiration – suddenly, without a break. Body-listening exercizes through simulation of ritual modells. "Creative presence in the chaos". Heterarchy in decline. A visit to Dojo of Sudo; Zen,, No,, Yes. Selfless music.
Gergely Pázmándi Mr G - Music as a primary language
We will get in touch with music theory in a fun and understandable way. Next to this, we will
immediately use our knowledge in improvisation and songwriting.
In the Afternoon (3pm - 6 pm)
In the afternoon all young musicians are invited to participate in self-organized groups, following own ideas. The groups choose standards, pieces, own compositions, improvisation methods, and practice them for the final concert. Teachers help them to achieve the best outcome.
Concert. The week spent with joint creation will be crowned by a public performance on the 25th July.
We organize a meeting during June to discuss details. For those, who don't live in Budapest, we will do it as a web-conference.
