Improvising from different input is always exciting. Today we used a stilleben as an input for forming a story. As usual it is hard to rhyme. But we get better at it as we go.
During one week the participants of the Ballad course at the Sommelo Festival got to try out some of the methods in Folk Song Lab. Story-board ballad and mirror -singing. Participants from Sweden, Finland, Russia, France, Norway did their best to find suitable storys to tell by improvised singing.
Today we had a session with focus on narrative. Since the session participants had different language background so did the narratives.
Great festival with concerts, workshops, seminaries as part of this years Nordtrad-meeting. A lot of things happening at KMH and off course also a session with Folk Song Lab with guest from the nordic and baltic countries and all the way from Ireland. The collaborative improvisation had to be in English!
