It was delightful to improvise in duos on the lyrics to the folk chorale ‘Den Signade Dag’. Using the method ‘Meandering’. A lot of ornamentation and melismas later we had this version – it’s combined by two different duo-sessions. The singers are:Maria Misgeld, Susanne Rosenberg, Eva Rune & Sofia Sandén. The video is created byContinue reading “Den Signade Dag – Christmas meandering”
After last week experiment with the method Imprint, we continued with our experiment in the inner circle of Folk Song Lab.By recording our own versions, from the cognitive frame of the song that Eva taught us, we recorded separate versions in solitude on our respective computer, like doing a Meandering session, but by ourselves. ThenContinue reading “Imprint – Meandering”
This week we been testing Folk Song Lab new method Imprint also in the inner circle of Folk Song Lab. This method actually fits quite well in the Corona days since it can be done through virtual meetings with the help of the excellent “Aloha” (www.elkaudio ) making it possible to sing together without latency!Continue reading “Testing a new method – Imprint”
Today We tried out the ALOHA from elkaudio.com and it did work out. Such a great feeling to be able to sing together without latency.
Today was the first time with IRL folk song lab since February. Such a nice feeling to hear voices sound in a real acoustic and not be hindered by the internet latency. A new method was tested – Imprint – more info to come on this new idea!
Today the session were inspired by a short film from a morning walk in the woods. Improvisation by meandering. Fun and Fascinating! A small video will be posted soon.
Today Folk Song Lab has tried both meandering and singing in ballad-form with a pulse. Kind of tricky – but super-fun. We will post our ‘findings’ soon. To meet through Zoom makes this possible, but its always a bit crazy.
In todays session, we started a new era in the project, by setting a goal to record videos in Folk Song Lab IVL – in virtual reality. Question arises – How to deal with latency? Is latency even to be considered a friend? Until next week a ‘shadow-singing’ video will be created! Here is howContinue reading “Folk Song Lab IVL”
How do we use our breath to apply to the phrasing in mirror-singing? And what happens to the breathing pattern when turning over to meandering? Are there any differences? And how do different breathing habits affect the turn-taking in Q&A? This is questions that we are curious to know a little bit more about. SoContinue reading “Breathing high and low”
