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”

Imprint – 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”
Testing a new method – Imprint
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”
Into the woods
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.
With a beat
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.
Folk Song Lab IVL
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”
Breathing high and low
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”
Heartbeat and breathe in Folk Song Lab
Today we have done a kind of first experimenting with using measuring tools for finding how the pulse and the breathing pattern changes during a session. This could be the way into finding how to measure group flow. Could it be that the breathing gets deeper during a session? It would be amazing to figureContinue reading “Heartbeat and breathe in Folk Song Lab”
Studio Recording of FoSoLa
Time for three days of recordings in the primary studio at KMH with the inner circle FoSoLa. Mirror-singing. Q&A. Meandering. Story-board. Kyrie. Herding call. Soundscape etc. were some of the improvising methods that we used. All recordings were made as a regular session, meaning at least 20 minuts in a stretch. Also did some recordingsContinue reading “Studio Recording of FoSoLa”
FoSoLa intense day
Today we, FoSoLa, the inner circle of Folk Song Lab has improvised the whole day. The astonishing ‘Körsalen’ (Choir Room) is a perfect both physical place and temporal space for experimenting. Giving the feeling of full view as well as seclusion.
